With the exception of substructure searching, *any* database, properly
configured, should suit your needs. Name searching is strictly a
lexicographical exercise, even if the names happen to describe chemicals.
For substructure searching, your choices are more limited. Unsurprisingly,
I am partial to CS ChemFinder (you can see a web-enabled version in action
at http://chemfinder.camsoft.com). Other database products that offer
substructure searching include databases by Daylight (http://www.daylight.com),
MDL (http://www.mdli.com), and Oxford Molecular (http://www.oxmol.com).
Prices vary substantially, from less than $1,000 to over $100,000.
