RSC uses semantic chemistry to link to compound information from journal articles

ball and stick chemical structureRoyal Society of Chemistry (RSC)  has extracted chemical names from all its journal publications from 2008-2010 (over 30,000 articles), and has integrated the primary compounds of interest into ChemSpider. Readers of the article HTML on the RSC’s Publishing Platform can highlight compounds, and click on them to link directly through to ChemSpider’s compound record to discover additional data and compound information sources.  Annotated PDFs of the same articles contain the same linkages which can be viewed using the Utopia document viewer for PDFs.
