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.  IF you downloaded an adhoc subset, we recommend you cite the search criteria, the date, and the number of molecules.  Please cite our paper: Irwin and Shoichet, J.

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. IF you downloaded an adhoc subset, we recommend you cite the search criteria, the date, and the number of molecules. Please cite our paper: Irwin and Shoichet, J. Chem. Inf.
