The UCSD Library recently licensed the MarinLit Database. Once available only to individuals through the University of Canterbury, it was acquired in late 2013 by the Royal Society of Chemistry and now offered to campuses with a site license.
MarinLit is a text and structural searchable database of the marine natural product literature, with some unique search features and dereplication tools that are not available in our other chemical information resources. This database will be useful to anyone researching marine natural products at SIO, SSPPS, and the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry. There are numerous ways to search the database, including:
- Bibliographic Information: article title and citation, author, trivial name
- Compound (for dereplication of newly isolated compounds): name, structure, molecular formula, mass, UV maxima, functional groups, NMR predicted shifts
If you have questions about using MarinLit, please contact Amy Butros (email@example.com) or Teri Vogel (firstname.lastname@example.org).
