There has been an outpouring of offers from the ChemSpider community in terms of helping to examine/clean and enhance information regarding carbohydrates on ChemSpider. Almost 2 dozen users have now made an offer to help. Very exciting really!

I’ve already outlined the necessity to improve the quality of associations between structures and identifiers on the database. However, I am also hoping that users will write articles about carbohydrates using the rich-text formatting capabilities (ADD Description), will add spectra if they have them, will link up articles if they have interesting papers and will add URLs to interesting online content also.

We have now delivered the ability to curate and enhance records on ChemSpider and look forward to having our users help, starting with Carbohydrates…

Stumble it!

    it is a-D-glucopyranosyl(1-4)-O-a-D-glucopyranosyl-(1-4)-O-D-glucopyranoside. The terminal residue can be both a or b so better to draw that bond undefined
