October 17, 2008

TimTec LLC., the international distributor of synthetic organic and natural compounds, and Collaborative Drug Discovery, Inc. (CDD), the community based research information management enterprise, announced today that the CDD web-based software now hosts TimTec’s Natural Product Library and Natural Derivatives Library. The TimTec natural product and derivative compounds are now available as a structure searchable database in the CDD Web2.0 collaborative research information system.

The CDD-TimTec Natural Products Library (NPL-480) and Natural Derivatives Library (NDL-3000) databases comprise almost 3,500 compounds available from TimTec. NPL-480 is a new library of 480 natural compounds composed of pure natural products as lead identifying materials. NDL-3000 elaborates on structural variety of pure natural compounds and includes synthetic compounds and synthetically modified pure natural compounds including, but not limited to, alkaloids, natural phenols, nucleoside analogs, carbohydrates, purines, pyrimidines, flavonoids, steroidal compounds and natural amino acids.

“The growing number of research institutions world-wide now investigating natural products will buoy the discovery of novel chemistry leading to a wealth of therapeutic breakthroughs,” said Dr. Barry Bunin, President of Collaborative Drug Discovery. “It’s natural that TimTec’s laboratories complement CDD’s academic partners in natural products research with a unique commercial source of natural products and diverse derivatives.”

“Beyond our successful compounds libraries, chemical software and drug discovery services, TimTec immediately appreciates the unique advantage and elegance of the CDD system to share our natural product compounds with the growing CDD community,” said Dr. Murat Niyazymbetov founder and President of TimTec.

The TimTec databases join 14 other publicly available data sources in the CDD system with chemical and biological data for over 42,000 agents including:

  • 1,700 FDA approved drugs with indications and sponsors
