Chemspider, search engine supported by The Royal Society of Chemistry (see my previous post), has scooped the Innovative Software Award at the iExpo/KM Forum 2010.

The award is organised by GFII (the Association for Professionals of the Information Industry) and recognises leading software providers in the information industry for their innovative capabilities and user interfaces.

Presented by Didier Benard, from Sanofi Aventis R & D, the award recognises a non-commercial initiative in enhancing information online whether for the professional community or for the general public.

The jury selected ChemSpider as an award winner for providing free access to data on chemical information (both text and structure-based), which is reliable and controlled by an international expert community.

ChemSpider links together compound information across the web, providing free text and structure search access of millions of chemical structures.

With an abundance of additional property information, tools to curate and use the data, and integration to a multitude of other online services, ChemSpider claims to be the richest single source of structure-based chemistry information available online.
