Chemical Database – Traditional Chinese Medicine


Chem-TCM is the digital database of individual molecules, constituents of plants used in the traditional Chinese herbal medicine. The database consists of four major parts: chemical identification, botanical information, predicted activity against common Western therapeutic targets, and estimated molecular activity according to traditional Chinese herbal medicine categories.

Chem-TCM database is a profound ethnopharmacological study, the culmination of the years of committed research work and modern computational chemistry advancements. It could be the most comprehensive to date attempt to connect Chinese and Western medicine on the molecular level.

The database was developed at King’s College London, in the UK, in part with the support of Innovation China-UK. TimTec LLC, a USA based company, is the sole licensee of the database and the commercial partner. Chem-TCM sublicenses are available for purchase from TimTec.
