PubChem is a search tool for chemical information, divided into threeareas: Compounds, Substances, and BioAssays. Full entries providedetailed information with the most basic information—a generaldescription, the molecular weight and formula, the structure, plus aTable of Contents (ToC) for the full entry—all easily found “above thefold.” Use the ToC or scroll down to retrieve more advanced information,such as bioactivity results, synonyms, chemical actions, detailedproperties, and more. Each module is fully interlinked with the othersections of PubChem as well as resources in ToxNet and PubMed, providingfull access to toxicology resources and the medical literature, andallowing users access to as much or as little of the chemicalinformation as they need.
