If you noticed performance issues in the past couple of days with ChemSpider we apologize. Unfortunately we were getting hit pretty hard by a university in Europe with over 400,000 hits made on the search page. This definitely had an impact on the performance of our web services and the general search performance. We’ve blocked the user now and are hoping for no repeats of the situation (though we have already had similar issues from other countries). If you are the person(s) who were trying to gather the data from our site please contact us directly at infoATchemspiderDOTcom and we can talk about what you are trying to achieve and whether we can help.
