For all those chemists (particulay organic
chemists) out there, please forgive in advance
but please read on!!!!!
I am trying to find a database that lists
atleast all the possible polycyclic/hetrocyclic
compounds upto about 12 rings and hetroatoms of
oxygen, sulphur and nitrogen. Of these hetroatoms,
the most important is oxygen as I guess the
number of permutations will become large with
I have looked in our library and am a little
daunted by the 50+ volumes of possible compounds
with no apparent global index or heirachy - I am
hoping a computer database exists or a good
hardcopy index with some sort of listing that
starts at 1 ring and no heteroatoms and goes down
from there (i.e. something that has done the sorting
for a non-organic chemist).
Please send requests to me at m.biggs $#at#$ surrey.ac.uk
and I shall summarize.
