NEW: search ZINC by name or CAS number

Dear ZINC Fans

You can now search for molecules in ZINC by name and CAS number using the quick search bar at the top right of the page. We support limited pattern matches: ? for single character substitutions and * to match anything. Thus if you can't remember if a drug is spelled Celexa or Cilexa, you could type c?lexa. Ever wondered how many drugs you can buy ending in "pride"? Just type *pride in the quick search bar, and you've got it in smiles, mol2, or spreadsheet format.

Synonyms and CAS numbers are now listed on molecule detail pages. Additional vendor supplied info (e.g. hazards, melting point, purity, applications) are listed at the bottom of the same page.

We will follow up with a video soon, but we thought you might want to start using this right away. The rules for how the quick search bar are interpreted will be the subject of a future wiki page. Follow us on twitter @chem4biology to stay tuned.

Please note: We are trying to make ZINC useful, but you must use it at your own risk. We cannot accept any liability for incorrect names or CAS numbers, which were supplied to us by vendors. If you have any doubt, please check against other sources.

ZINC_ID to CAS_#

Hi,
Does anyone know how to convert a list of ZINC_IDs to the corresponding CAS_#.
I do not want to do one-by-one and view using the "details" option.
Any pointers are greatly appreciated.
