Pharmaceutical Substances

We now have access to Pharmaceutical Substances, Thieme's online compendium of information on active pharmaceutical ingredients of interest to the chemical and pharmaceutical industries. Entries include information on:

  • Chemical structure
  • Synthetic route
  • Nomenclature
  • Medical applications
  • Toxicological data
  • Patent information
  • Commercial information
  • Bibliographic information

Once you are at the site, click the blue "Login" button in the top left corner to open Pharmaceutical Substances. If you want to do structure or reaction searches, click on the "Advanced Search" button. Three structure editors are supported: ISIS/Draw, ChemDraw and Java/Applet.

Access is available from all campus computers. UC Berkeley faculty, staff, and students can also access these resources from off campus via the Library Proxy Server.
