CDD Vault Update: Image Sizes and Solvents of Crystallization
August 20, 2014
Adjustable image size in the search results table
“Small” molecules come in a variety of sizes, and you can now adjust the structure images to suit your molecules and eyesight. Dose-response plots and images from uploaded files also scale to the same small, medium, or large previews in the search results table.
The size is set in the “customize your report” interface, and vault administrators can set the default size for all vault members.
Solvents of crystallization
CDD Vault already provides sophisticated handling of salts and hydrates, but what if a solvent other than water is incorporated into the crystal form of a compound? How can you track the correct formula weight? With this release, solvents on the following list will be automatically stripped from the core structure during registration.
When a salt or solvent of crystallization is present in a Molfile or SMILES, it is removed from the core structure and stored in a separate batch field. Ratios are preserved, and the formula weight is calculated accordingly.
Salts and solvents of crystallization may also be edited manually, and can be imported separately from the core structure by mapping them to the “Salt” field. Values mapped to this field should follow the format of “3 HCl / 2 Ethanol”.
