A Blogroll Update

Email This Entry

Posted by Derek

I've gone through the blogroll, clearing out inactive sites and adding new ones. So welcome to Med-Chemist, Chemical Crystallinity,
Synthetic Nature, , Chiral Jones, and P212121!

And I've also added another category for chemistry and pharma database sites. There you'll find a quick way to access the copious piles of information from Drugbank, Emolecules, ChemSpider, PubChem, DailyMed, Druglib, and

As always, if I've left a blog (or your blog!) off the list, drop me an e-mail and let me know about it. If it's of potential interest to the readership here, on it goes.

Thank you very much for the add/support.

by the way, "DailyMed" has become my favorite play on words du jour, and is most likely going to be the source of much procrastination/unnecessary-information-learning

What do you mean? Are you saying following my blog is bad for yourself worth?

I am really messing up if anyone is feeling bad when they read my blog. I would love help you out (if I can) so feel to drop me an email, lets talk.
