About Molbank

Authors are encouraged to register or deposit their chemical samples through the non-profit international organization Molecular Diversity Preservation International (MDPI).
  • Molbank has been launched to preserve and exploit molecular diversity of both chemical information and chemical substances.


  • organic synthesis
  • biosynthesis
  • natural product isolation and derivatization
