A few weeks ago we put a number of spectra online using Bob Lancashire’s JSpecView applet. Specifically, using data supplied by John Meyers from our Advisory Group, we put up some IR data, Raman data and MS data associated with cocaine.
The intention is to allow ChemSpider users to add their spectral data to records on the ChemSpider database to facilitate open access sharing of analytical data.
As commented, this is for Proof of Concept. We are seeing some dependencies on the Java Version as well as whether the browser is Internet Explorer, Firefox or Safari and whether it is on Mac or PC. We need your help. Please visit the cocaine page and scroll down to the bottom of the page and respond to this blog post with a comment regarding whether you can see the series of spectra or not. If not, then let us know what platform you are on in terms of PC or Mac, browser and version number and the Java version.
I have recently participated in a demo led by the RedHen Spectra group. Their efforts are definitely of interest in terms of a potential mash-up in the future.
If you are interested in submitting spectra onto ChemSpider in the future (we are presently accepting NMR, MS (non-hyphenated), IR, Raman etc.) please contact us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org to initiate discussions.
