In order to submit procedures to ChemSpider Synthetic Pages, you will need to have a ChemSpider account linked to an RSC ID, and you will need to have the Submitter role.

For more information about registering for a new ChemSpider account or linking your existing account with an RSC ID, please view our PDF registration guide.


Your Profile and requesting new roles

When you are logged in to your ChemSpider account, you will be able to see some extra menu options, one of which is My ChemSpider, which allows you to view and change your Profile.

Your profile page allows you to change your address and other contact details (to change your email address please contact us directly). You can also choose to opt in (or out) of ChemSpider and RSC mailing lists (note: these changes may take up to a week to propagate through our system), or change your password.

On your Profile page you are also given the option to request certain user roles. There are 4 basic roles that a ChemSpider SyntheticPages user can request:

  • Beta tester – This role allows you to test new features before we release them
  • Curator -
  • Submitter – This gives you the ability to create/submit SyntheticPages. New users should have this role by default, if you have an older account you may need to request this role
  • Service Subscriber – We currently do not have any webservices associated with ChemSpider Synthetic Pages but in the future you will be able to request this role to allow you to use our APIs.

If you wish to request a role please check the boxes next to the roles that you would like and then click, the Update button at the bottom of the profile page. A member of the ChemSpider team will review your request and respond as soon as possible (usually less than 24 h).
