Tools of Chemical Databases

O P Rathod, A. S. Srivastava


Chemical database have become an important part in chemical sciences. A chemical database is a database specifically designed to store chemical information. This information is about chemical and crystal structures, spectra, reactions and syntheses, and thermo physical data. It helps the scientists to search and analyze data on a large scale for varying purposes. Herein, we have briefed the concept of chemical databases and their role in chemistry. This brief review will help the beginners and graduate students improvise their knowledge in this field.

Keywords: chemical databases, chemical structures, storage, information, crystal structures.
