We have recently developed NCATSFind:
add-on to help users resolve web content to real chemical structures.
The goal is to make discovering, displaying and downloading chemical structures as simple as possible
- Select some content from a page:
- Resolve it to a structure.
- Display structure and origin
- Allow export
Names and codes are resolved using our resolver web service. This service uses dictionaries from several public sources (PubChem, FDA-SRS, NCI, etc ...), as well as OPSIN
for systematic name parsing. Images are resolved using our image resolver web service, which uses OSRA
to convert an image to a chemical format.
For a simple demo, check out the video:
To install the add-on into your Firefox browser, simply click on the following link:
While our web services don't keep systematic logs of searches, any use of the resolver will transmit data to and from our web servers. For that reason, we recommend against attempting to resolve any sensitive data.
