ZINC History This is the history of the web interface to ZINC. The database itself - i.e. the collection of molecules - is continuously updated. For citation, we recommend giving the name of the subset, the date it was generated, and the date it was downloaded. For instance: ZINC lead-like, 3.7M molecules, generated on Dec 1, 2011 and downloaded on Dec 15, 2011.

Past

  • ZINC 12. Lab testing began in March 2011. Alpha release in late summer 2011. Beta release Dec 1, 2011. Production Release Jan 1, 2012.
  • ZINC 11. April 2010. New Search interface with ChemAxon JChemBase/MySQL as the search engine.
  • ZINC 10. Feb. 2010. moved to SVN. Minor corrections.
  • ZINC 9. Development use only.
  • ZINC8 was released June 18th, 2008. It was the last major release before we started using ChemAxon as the backend.
  • ZINC7 was released 1/1/2007. It was an incremental release, and looks much like ZIN C7. It will be no longer available after September 2009.
  • ZINC6 was released 1/1/2006. It was a major release in which all molecular geometries were re-created from scratch. It will be no longer available after September 2009.
  • ZINC5 was released 1/1/2005. It was a major release, and coincided with the publication of the ZINC paper. It will be no longer available after September 2009.
  • ZINC1-4 were early development releases and are no longer available.

Future

  • Work on ZINC 13 began in the fall of 2011. A beta version is expected in the second half of 2012.
