Chemistry & Biochemistry Research Guide: Structures
A convenient place for accessing the most useful chemistry information and resources from DePaul University Library, including article and structure searching databases, books, data, tools, websites, encyclopedias, and of course ...librarians!
A wide variety of structure editors (or "drawing editors") are available to help you visualize and search specific chemical structures and reactions. Many of these require Java software, which you can update HERE if needed.
Use the SciFinder 'Explore Substances' search options to uncover chemical properties data (search by Chemical Structure; Markush; Molecular Formula; or Substance Identifier). Find 'How To' tutorials on the 'Videos" tab of this guide.
Publicly-accessible search engine providing structures, data, tools, programs and other useful information for researchers interested in computer-aided drug design and other types of chemical information
Portal provided by the "National Center for Biotechnology Information" to tools and resources for finding and searching structures, classification, biological activity, visualization and other aspects of proteins and other macromolecules.
Database providing free browse/search access to around 150,000 ‘small molecule' & 'small to medium-sized' unit cell’ crystal structures. Partial or total database downloading is made possible, using a variety of communication protocols.
Access note: Freely available to the public.
Search or browse every structure published in the American Mineralogist, The Canadian Mineralogist, European Journal of Mineralogy and Physics and Chemistry of Minerals, as well as selected datasets from other journals.
Around 5,000 individual mineral species descriptions with links to crystallographic, diffraction, composition, physical properties, structure data, a comprehensive image library, and numerous links to additional information sources.
Alternately formatted guide to the IUPAC Recommendations on Organic & Biochemical Nomenclature, Symbols & Terminology etc. prepared by the School of Biological and Chemical Sciences, Queen Mary University of London.
