Chemical blogspace is getting more chemical

The best remedy for being depressed is the rush after hacking some nice new feature (unfortunately, it is addictive). After hacking InChI support into Chemical blogspace a couple of days back, adding some more visual feedback on those molecules is not that hard, with PubChem around that is:

Beware! Every marked up molecule in your blog is being picked up! So should the compound with the SMILES N(=NC1=CC=C(C=C1)N(CCO)CCO)C3=CC=C(C=CC2=C(C(=C(C#N)C#N)OC2(C)C)C#N)S3, which is reported to be the most light sensitive molecule every synthesized so far.


  1. Very nice - I'll make sure to include a few relevant molecules in my next post

  2. How do I add a picture to my blog description in the Chemical Blogspace site?


  3. Mitch,

    the pictures currently come from The website source code is opensource, and can be found on the 'openreview' project at

  4. Hmmm, I wonder why it isn't pulling my technorati photo.
