iScienceSearch: Search Engine for Biologists and Chemists


Search the internet by structure

iScienceSearch is an  Internet search tool for scientists that want to search for chemical data on the Internet - it makes a federated search over many scientific databases on the Internet.

  • Search the Internet by structure!
  • Find structures for synonyms!
  • Submit several compound in one search - use SDFiles.
  • Find biological effects of a compound.
  • Get access to information that was until recently a very costly service.

 iScienceSearch allows searching the Internet by structure, synonym, CAS Registry Number and free text. In the background, we return structure, names and CAS Registry Numbers* within seconds.  A search by name can automatically invoke another search by structure and/or CAS Registry, or any combination of these. iScienceSearch presently searches more than 60 free chemical and pharma relevant databases  -- containing more than 100 million pages which associate chemical structures with data.
