Gerry, Relative to the comment "eMolecules is the world's leading Open-access Chemical Structure Search Engine. " I think the world's leading Open Access structure search engine is more likely to be PubChem?

Relative to the comment "the world's largest and most popular chemical structure search engine" I'm not sure what the measures are but I would say that it should be quantified...probably compared with both the CSLS (http://cactus.nci.nih.gov/cgi-bin/lookup/search)and with ChemSpider (www.chemspider.com)

I do know that you have copied the marketing statements but I am commenting on the validity.
