Fast Lane to Chemical Information: JRC launches ChemAgora
ChemAgora, a new chemical information portal launched by the European Commission's Joint Research Centre, will make life easier for everybody who is looking for information available online on a certain chemical substance. Chemicals can be searched by their name, (also partial), CAS Registration number, InChIKey or chemical structure (by drawing the molecule in an appropriate editor). Once either of these search criteria is entered, the JRC service searches through a series of public repositories (currently twelve) and offers clickable links to the exact pages where more information about the chemical can be found. The tool also provides a list of synonyms the chemical is known under.
