Introduction
TM-MC 2.0 provides the largest collection of information about chemical compounds of medicinal materials listed in the Korean, Chinese, and Japanese pharmacopoeias. The information on chemical compounds of medicinal materials was manually extracted and curated from chromatographic articles in PubMed. All compounds have been identified and de-duplicated, and are given with their corresponding identifiers and pharmacokinetic properties. TM-MC 2.0 also includes new information on prescriptions, gene targets, modern diseases, and their associations.
Updates
  • 2024. 1. 16.
  • - TM-MC 2.0 has been published in BMC Complement Med Ther 24, 40. https://doi.org/10.1186/s12906-023-04331-y.
    - Because TM-MC is constantly being updated, the number of compounds and targets may increase or decrease.
    - We plan to upload the updated database to the TM-MC 2.0 homepage once a month.
    - TM-MC does not unconditionally trust the information in the PubChem database because PubChem database also has errors.
    - TM-MC relies on referenced papers, PubChem database, and internet searches to finally define the compound's information.
