  12. Open melting point integrated into Symyx-Accelrys chemistry drawing software (James Jack)


1. Melting point explorer by name drop-down menu, SMARTS or mp range (link(oru)


2. Given a CSID, provides list of experimental melting points with an option for a predicted value (example(oru), description )


3. Given a CSID, provides list of experimental melting points with an option for a predicted value and an option to curate (example(oru), description )


4. Given a CSID, provides list of experimental melting points with a prediction (example(oru), description ) - note: may take a minute to calculate predicted value.


5. Given a CSID, provides single number averaged experimental melting point - excludes measurements marked as do not use - example (lxsrv7)


6. Given a SMILES, provides a melting point prediction (link, description) - Uses QBD platform provided by Villu Ruussmann.
