We live in an exponentially expanding world of “big data”. Social networks, global portals and other distributed systems have been attempting to deal with the problem for a few years now. Scientific applications are commonly lagging behind the mainstream trends due to the complexity of the scientific domain. The Royal Society of Chemistry is building the Global Chemistry Network connecting a variety of resources both in-house and external, bridging gaps and advancing the chemical sciences. One of the main issues connected to the world of big data is the ease of navigation and comprehensiveness of the search capabilities. This is where the approach of the semantic web meets the world of big data. We will present our approaches in building a global federated chemistry platform connecting multiple domains of chemistry using semantic web technologies.
