Hi![edit]

Hi, as one of the editors busy here with validation, I am certainly interested in the request you posted at the talkpages of the chemical infoboxes (and I am sure others as well).

What we have at the moment: we have a whole list of articles with validated ChemSpiderIDs, StdInChI's, UNIIs and StdInChIKeys. If we can link outside data to that, then we can add or update those other external data directly to that (and add it to the articles where needed, and keeping track of that). If you can provide me with a list of ChEMBL numbers directly linked to any of these identifiers, then we can in principle start integrating that information.

Questions, a) what is the difference between ChEMBL and ChEBI? Does that mean we get to different identifiers on some/most articles? b) can you provide a similar list for ChEBI? It would be nice to incorporate both ..

If I can find the time, I will prepare the drug and chembox for having also the ChEMBL numbers, and check upon the display of ChEBI.

Thanks, and if I don't speak to you before X-mas (I'm leaving soon): have a nice Christmas and a happy new year. --Dirk Beetstra T C 14:03, 16 December 2010 (UTC)

I adapted the chembox and the drugbox to allow for ChEMBL (and added ChEBI to the drugbox as well). Examples: Paracetamol and Caffeine. Feel free to add others.

Just as a note, I would like to make you aware of our conflict of interest guideline. I do however believe that your approach is fully in line with this guideline, so I would not worry about it.

Another note: if you have access to IRC, you might want to drop in at #wikichem on freenode. We (editors involved in Wikipedia:WikiProject Chemicals/Wikipedia:WikiProject Pharmacology/Wikipedia:WikiProject Chemistry - especially those involved in the validation work) sometimes come together there (especially on Tuesday's, late in the afternoon, UTC, but some, like me, hang around there more regular). Kind regards. --Dirk Beetstra T C 15:08, 16 December 2010 (UTC)

I saw you noted it. Note, as long as we don't have the data properly verified, CheMoBot will come along and re-tag the 'ChEMBL_Ref' field to 'changed'. Don't worry about that, we will work on that in the future. --Dirk Beetstra T C 16:01, 16 December 2010 (UTC)

Pff .. why not tell the rest then. If all of 'ChemSpiderID', 'StdInChI', 'StdInChIKey', 'UNII' ánd 'ChEMBL' are correct (or blank), then please add the top revid to the appropriate index - see Wikipedia:WikiProject Chemicals/Index for the pages with a chembox, and Wikipedia:WikiProject Pharmacology/Index for pages with a drugbox; a short manual is available there. Thanks! --Dirk Beetstra T C 16:03, 16 December 2010 (UTC)

Regarding this .. don't bother at the moment, the bot sees the change, and will unfortunately keep on disagreeing ... unless you update the index. --Dirk Beetstra T C 16:15, 16 December 2010 (UTC)

License tagging for File:StructureWay181187.png[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:StructureWay181187.png. You don't seem to have indicated the license status of the image. Wikipedia uses a set of image copyright tags to indicate this information; to add a tag to the image, select the appropriate tag from this list, click on this link, then click "Edit this page" and add the tag to the image's description. If there doesn't seem to be a suitable tag, the image is probably not appropriate for use on Wikipedia.

For help in choosing the correct tag, or for any other questions, leave a message on Wikipedia:Media copyright questions. Thank you for your cooperation. --ImageTaggingBot (talk) 12:05, 27 January 2011 (UTC)

Drugbox and edit summaries[edit]

Hi there, I just moved the drugbox you added in Sodium fluoride up a few lines, so it appears before the lead of the article. Your edit produced this result. As you can see, the page lay-out was destroyed. So would you please (1) show a preview before you save your edits and verify the final result, and (2) always provide an edit summary for your edits? Thanks and cheers - DVdm (talk) 10:08, 2 February 2011 (UTC)

I would actually not add both a {{drugbox}} ánd a {{chembox}} to one article. Both are mutually complementary, all fields in the drugbox can also be handled by the chembox (and all drug-related fields of the chembox can be handled by the drugbox). You might want to have a look at {{Chembox Pharmacology}}, which can be added as a module to the {{chembox}} (find a free section number, and add section# = {{Chembox Pharmacology | (all the parameters you need) }}. Hope this explains (I am removing the drugbox for Sodium fluoride again now ..). --Dirk Beetstra T C 10:18, 2 February 2011 (UTC)

I looked at the layout for NaF drugbox and it looked fine. I added the drug box as NaF has been used in a therapeutic way, according to our biological data. Also, I have tried to add the Chembl ID to the chembox and it doesn't show. Please can this get fixed?— Preceding unsigned comment added by Louisajb (talkcontribs)

Hmm .. I looked, and it is there. Ah, I see. It needs to be in the 'chembox identifiers' section, but here you added it in the main part of the botx. That part indeed does not recognise it. I hope this helps, and it is fixed now. --Dirk Beetstra T C 10:35, 2 February 2011 (UTC)

Thanks Dirk!— Preceding unsigned comment added by Louisajb (talkcontribs)

Oops, I made a typo in my previous post ('bot' in stead of 'box'). By the way, please sign your posts on talkpages with four tildes (i.e. '~~~~') - when they are saved, they automatically create your signature. Happy editing! --Dirk Beetstra T C 11:06, 2 February 2011 (UTC)

Commons?[edit]

Hi, I see you uploaded some structures to Wikipedia. Have you considered uploading to Commons instead? Images here can only be used by en-Wikipedia. Images on Commons can be used by all Wikipedias in the world. You might like the following link...

http://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=Special:Upload&wpUploadDescription={{Information%0A|Description={{en|Structure%20of%20}}%0A|Source={{Own}}%0A|Date={{subst:CURRENTYEAR}}-{{subst:CURRENTMONTH}}-{{subst:CURRENTDAY}}%0A|Author=~~~%0A|Permission={{PD-chem}}%0A|Other_versions=%0A}}

Assuming you have started a commons account (you can do that with a unified account - see WP:SUL), It will give you a perfect structure upload page, with the main edit to be the file name and the name of the molecule in the description box. Sorry the link is not clickable - too much wiki templates (but it is on this page - commons:User:Ronhjones. Once on commons the view from en-Wiki is like File:Tandamine.svg and the view at commons is commons:File:Tandamine.svg, when embedded into an article - the user cannot see any difference.  Ronhjones  (Talk) 23:10, 20 April 2011 (UTC)

Please upload the chemical structures to Commons. You might use Commons:Upload/Chemistry for doing so. If you have any questions concerning Commons, please ask. --Leyo 17:50, 1 June 2011 (UTC)

Hi, I this something that I definitely must to do to continue creating structures for pages or are you just suggesting that I use this link? I just want to make sure as I have conflicting advice. I was under the impression that as long as it shows a valid structure then it doesn't matter how it is uploaded. Thanks Louisajb (talk) 22:02, 1 June 2011 (UTC)

The important thing is that images of chemical structures are uploaded to Commons, not to en.wikipedia. The two links will give a similar result. You may choose. --Leyo 22:12, 1 June 2011 (UTC)

File:Cnicin2.png missing description details[edit]

Dear uploader: The media file you uploaded as File:Cnicin2.png is missing a description and/or other details on its image description page. If possible, please add this information. This will help other editors to make better use of the image, and it will be more informative for readers.

If the information is not provided, the image may eventually be proposed for deletion, a situation which is not desirable, and which can easily be avoided.

If you have any questions please see Help:Image page. Thank you. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 07:53, 4 May 2011 (UTC)

Chemical structures[edit]

Dear Louisajb. Thank you for uploading chemical structures.

But please have a look at this help site. Your structures are for non-chemists misleading, as the hardly understand the meaning of (R) or (S) at the same position as the carbon atom. In addition, black and white images are quite fine, colors only at rare circumstances.

Thanks a lot, --Yikrazuul (talk) 16:59, 12 May 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for the tips. However, the colour comes automatically from the sketcher that I use and I think that it is useful to show the different atoms in the chemical structure. Also, my structures are not 'misleading' and that page you pointed me to says that stereo SHOULD be shown and by having the (R) and (S) on the molecule, it helps people to understand exactly what conformation the compound is in, rather than having to look through the IUPAC name and working out the numbering system. Do you think that just showing a wedge or dashed bond is any more clear for non-chemists? Additionally, why would non-chemists be looking at the compounds? If they are not chemists, but biologists or pharmacists, then they should definitely understand what (R) and (S) are, as it is important for what they do. If they are neither, then it won't matter to them or a simple internet search will help them understand but I will take your suggestions under consideration.

Louisajb (talk) 07:36, 13 May 2011 (UTC)

Hey Louisajb, thx for your answer. As for
1) the colors: the idea is that simple black and white has benefits for disasbled persons or if someone is priting it with a b/w-printer. In addition, the more different atoms are shown, the more tricky the color finding will be (yellow will be e. g. not suitable).
2) "stereo SHOULD be shown", of course, this is what I have done, too. But not in the way, that (R) and (S) are depicted in a special way, especially in place of the carbon atoms. I have to agree: non-chemists won't neither understand those wedges/dashes nor the (R) and (S) in the formula.
BUT: We should take the style of drawing what one can usually find in textbooks (or internetpages). And for my experience, wedged/dashed bonds are dominating.
What I would like to say is that after years we have a kind of common style here on wikipedia. This is benefitial and a the result of some discussions and time. That does not mean that everyone have to obey, but it makes it more probable that your work will be superceded by others. Best regards, --Yikrazuul (talk) 17:43, 13 May 2011 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of UCL-1530[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on UCL-1530 requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A1 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is a very short article providing little or no context to the reader. Please see Wikipedia:Stub for our minimum information standards for short articles. Also please note that articles must be on notable subjects and should provide references to reliable sources that verify their content.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, contest the deletion by clicking on the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion," which appears inside of the speedy deletion ({{db-...}}) tag (if no such tag exists, the page is no longer a speedy delete candidate). Doing so will take you to the talk page where you will find a pre-formatted place for you to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the the page's talk page directly to give your reasons, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, you can contact one of these administrators to request that the administrator userfy the page or email a copy to you. Maher-shalal-hashbaz (talk) 00:36, 6 June 2011 (UTC)


I would have appreciated being given more than 6 hours notice to add information to this page before it was deleted. To send this information to UK users during the middle of the night and then to delete it in the early hours of the morning is inconsiderate - I am sure that you understand time differences and having the chance to enhance the page before deletion would have been a decent thing to do. Louisajb (talk) 08:14, 6 June 2011 (UTC)

If you want, I can restore the article and move it to User:Louisajb/UCL-1530, where you could extend it. --Leyo 08:56, 6 June 2011 (UTC)

That would be appreciated. Thank you. Louisajb (talk) 09:01, 6 June 2011 (UTC)

 Done. Don't move the article back before it has been extended. --Leyo 09:37, 6 June 2011 (UTC)

Stereochemistry[edit]

I'm confused by your edits to Miglustat, among others. Your edit summary was "changed structure to show stereo", but the previous structure there, File:Miglustat.svg, does have fully explicit absolute sterochemistry at every stereocenter. And even more, it also illustrates the likely conformation of the ring rather than it being a flat hexagon. Could you clarify what the problem was with the original? DMacks (talk) 16:02, 12 December 2011 (UTC)

There was nothing 'wrong' with the original. Although the cyclohexane chair/boat conformation is one way to represent the structure, the most common way that these structures are drawn are with the stereo on the bonds themselves, rather that stereo within the ring. This also applies to the other compounds I have been editing. It is better to show the stereo on the functional group bond rather than within the ring as I believe it is easier to visualise. Louisajb (talk) 16:11, 12 December 2011 (UTC)

Consensus for increasing image size[edit]

Is there consensus to increase the image sizes of the chemical structures? Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 05:12, 13 December 2011 (UTC)

The structures that I have enlarged were rather small and it was difficult to see any stereo or the intricacies of the compound. I enlarged them for ease of viewing. There seems to be no consistency with structure sizes in Wikipedia. Louisajb (talk) 07:14, 13 December 2011 (UTC)

Ticagrelor[edit]

Hi! What was wrong with the old structure? The new one does not comply with the style guide for chemical structures (font size, line width). Cheers, ἀνυπόδητος (talk) 10:01, 13 December 2011 (UTC)

There was nothing 'wrong' with the old one, but it had the stereo in the five-membered ring, rather than on the bonds coming off it which can sometimes be hard to determine the overall stereochemistry from. The most common way of representing this structure is how I have drawn it (do a Google image search on the name). Additionally, it was drawn in ChemDraw and, as far as I am aware, does comply with the rules. I have just read through the page you linked to and I cannot see how mine is in contravention to that. It is a valid chemical structure, drawn with valid stereo bonds. Louisajb (talk) 10:14, 13 December 2011 (UTC)

I see you changed it. Thanks, looks much better IMHO. --ἀνυπόδητος (talk) 18:52, 13 December 2011 (UTC)

Hi... Regarding the image File:Ostraminsky.svg shown in the 1,3-butadiene article, I was wondering if you would correct it and upload an updated version? The equation is presently unbalanced - two H atoms vanish - and this is because it shows two ethanol molecules combining whereas the Ostraminsky reaction actually involves the condensation of ethanol and acetaldehyde. I would also suggest adding "Ta/silica catalyst" over the reaction arrow and "325-350 °C" below the arrow to show the conditions under which the process occurs. Thanks.
