I am looking for lists (or repositories) of small molecules with connection tables (or machine-parsable molecular structures) which are Open. By Open I mean that anyone can, in principle download, copy or clone part or all of the site, re-use the information and redistribute without reference to the original site. At present I am aware of:
Pubchem (10 million+ , superset of many Open datasets including NCI. I use this term to subsume everything at nih.gov)
ChEBI (> 25 000 terms collected at EBI, not all with connection tables)
MSD (ligands in Protein structures, collected at EBI > 5000)
WWMM (250, 000 calculated structures from NCI database). Reposited in DSpace,
The BlueObelisk Data Repository (BODR). A collection of critical information collected by BO volunteers primarily as reference data for (Open) software. (includes non-molecular stuff like elemental properties). BODR is widely distributed on Gnome and other Open Source distros.
Iíve almost certainly missed some so please let us know....

The open access movement:
Putting peer-reviewed scientific and scholarly literature
on the internet. Making it available free of charge and
free of most copyright and licensing restrictions.
Removing the barriers to serious research.
