Last week I was in the United Kingdom for numerous meetings and at the end of the week struggled to drive north to Macclesfield to the AstraZeneca site there to give a presentation on ChemSpider for an old colleague of mine from the Eastman Kodak company. I had not seen Tony Bristow in well over a decade but we reminisced about the good old days at Kodak (Tony worked in Harrow, UK and I worked in Rochester, NY. Tony is a Mass Spectrometrist and I am an NMR Spectroscopist by training). We also discussed how scientists are increasingly tapping into the ChemSpider resource to aid in the identification of chemical compounds using, especially, Mass Spectrometry. We have numerous examples now of when people are solving their structure ID issues directly by searching ChemSpider and are building up a portfolio of success stories.
The presentation I gave is below and loaded on SlideShare in case you want to download it.
