I was delighted to hear from colleagues at the Royal Society of Chemistry that they have acquired Antony Williams Chemspider. I had the chance to have a long talk with Antony two weeks ago at BioIT and we discussed possible areas of mutual interest. At UCC we've also had a long and successful collaboration with the RSC, including work which led to the creation of OSCAR and Project Prospect.
As I blogged last week this is a pioneering example of the positive role of learned societies in C21, adding sustainability and trust.
I'll write more later - still fighting the blogging software.
I think this will help to make a major change in chemical informatics and I'm keen to see how we could add synergy.
