Over the past couple of years we have put a lot of work in to integrate Wikipedia content to ChemSpider and assist a group of committed individuals to curate the Wikipedia Chemistry content. We want to help people  identify when records connect to Wikipedia so in Table mode we have now added the Wikipedia logo so that it is easy to recognize the association. One more step to speeding up the discovery of knowledge…
