Honour for RSC scientist behind online chemistry database

A scientist has received Microsoft’s 2012 Jim Gray eScience Award for his work on developing an online database of chemical structures.

The honour went to Antony Williams, vice president for strategic development and head of the cheminformatics group at the Royal Society of Chemistry. The database he worked on is called ChemSpider, which provides scientists with structural information on 28 million chemicals. The scientific community can deposit, annotate and curate information in the database.
