Synomyns of compounds

Hi all,

I was wondering if anybody knows of a comprehensive open-source of synonyms for compounds? I am wondering if PubChem would be the best source.

Ultimately, I want to search pubmed for occurances of a set of ~500 named compounds.

You can also perform this search using ChemSpider.

If you find the record for the compound of interest and open the Articles infobox, there is a tab labelled PubMed which returns results from PubMed. The results are returned by creating a query using all of the validated synonyms in the Names and Identifiers Infobox. Only 6-7 of the PubMed results are returned in the Articles Infobox, but there is a link which will take you through to the NCBI homepage where you can see all of the results and/or refine the search.

Is it possible to download all the validated names/identifiers in ChemSpider? I am searching for ~2000 compounds, so am making use of the eutils facility in pubmed.
