Global Chem

Global Chem is as an open source government focused on transforming common chemical names into 1-D molecule representations, facilitating universal recording and governance. Join us in shaping a future of open, accessible, and collaborative chemical data management, unlocking the full potential of global chemical knowledge.

Our Mission

We are creating a shared resource of common chemical names that anyone can understand, while also keeping track of their safety for everyday use. By working together as an open source community and utilizing the right tools, we can make informed decisions that benefit everyone.
