BIA-10-2474, confusions in chemical structure and the need for EARLY clarity in chemical structures   2 comments

My blog has been fairly inactive for the past few months, driven primarily by my move from working on cheminformatics at the Royal Society of Chemistry to working at the National Center for Computational Toxicology at the Environmental Protection Agency. While I stopped working on ChemSpider about 18 months before I left RSC (to focus […]

But it covers the nature of exchanges that Egon Willighagen and I have been having recently (that among others as we are co-authoring a book chapter on Computational Toxicology also). Egon asked a question on the Blue Obelisk Discussion group about tautomers and I answered it […]

Finding the Structure of Vitamin K1 Online   1 comment

You would think that finding the correct structure of Vitamin K1 online in public domain resources would be an easy exercise. But not so fast. Using the assertion that the chemical structure is correct in the Merck Index, and then wandering through CAS’s Common Chemistry to validate this assumption, this short movie takes us through […]

Books I am reading – The Autoimmune Epidemic   2 comments

I seem to be surrounded by people who have developed “autoimmune diseases” (ID) over the past few years. These are commonly people around the age of 40 and are therefore my peer group.
