Chemical database and its types: Brief Review

Bharat Singh


Chemical database is a powerful branch of cheminformatics research and development, the chief function of which is storing, indexing and searching of information related to chemical compounds and reaction synthesis using computer science and information technology. Computer-based representation of chemicals makes it possible to organize data in chemical databases-collections of chemical structures and associated properties. The typical kinds of information found in a chemical database are considered-identification, structural, and associated data. Here, in this brief review, an outline of the objective of chemical databases and their types is described.
