Abstract: We describe our model of a virtual chemistry
information environment of inter-linked techniques, experimental and
instrumental data, and information sources held at Imperial College
and elsewhere. We have made use of a number of recent World-Wide Web
technologies for incorporating active chemical information into
documents, including chemical MIME standards, chemical structure
markup language (CSML), Virtual Reality Modelling language (VRML), Java
applets and Chemical Markup Language (CML). The overall objective is
that the user will be able to follow a chemical "thread" to acquire an
integrated portfolio of "hyperactive" molecular information, replacing
the more traditional outcome of handwritten notes and photocopies of
primary information found in more traditional libraries.
