In response to customer requests, MolPort is pleased to announce the addition of solubility flags to its online chemical sourcing database.
Customers purchasing large numbers of screening compounds report that typically 1-5% of the samples they receive cannot be tested, because they are not sufficiently soluble in standard solvents. This wastes time and money, and delays the screening process. Several customers worked with MolPort to deposit their own observations of sample solubility for addition to the MolPort database, and to share them with other customers as part of a pre-competitive collaboration.
Customers can now use the solubility flags in individual records and via List Searches to avoid compounds with solubility issues and to focus on soluble compounds, thus avoiding insolubles and saving time and expense in screening programs.
All screening compounds in the MolPort database are coded with one of three possible flags:
Solubility flags are added to the MolPort database records, and customers can access and use them in several ways:

If you been collecting solubility observations on the screening compounds that you have purchased, we encourage you to donate them to MolPort so that they can be shared with other customers in a pre-competitive spirit that will save you all time and expense.
You can submit solubility information securely and confidentially via a simple Microsoft Excel template, which can be downloaded from here. Please fill in the requested fields and send the data to firstname.lastname@example.org.
All submitted data will be loaded in the MolPort database anonymously and will be made available to anyone.
