About ChemWhat

ChemWhat is a chemical and biological database brand with the concept “Accurate, Comprehensive and Reliable”. Since the launch in early 2019, ChemWhat has become a key chemical information resource for scientists, students, and the general public. Each month our websites provide data to several million users worldwide.

ChemWhat mostly contains small molecules, but also larger molecules such as nucleotides, carbohydrates, lipids, peptides, and chemically-modified macromolecules. We collect information on chemical structures, identification, chemical and physical properties, biological activities, route of synthesis (ROS), spectrums, patents, health, safety, toxicity data, storage, transportation, usage, market price and many others.

ChemWhat has launched 21 language sites, including English, German, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, Polish, Russian, Ukrainian, Hindi, Urdu, Bengali, Arabic, Persian, Hebrew, Turkish, Korean, Indonesian, Japanese, Traditional Chinese and Simplified Chinese.
