Molecules submitted to the BU-CMD are distributed annually to our network of collaborators in the Chemical Library Consortium (CLC) for biological screening. Please see the forms below for more information on submitting compounds to our screening collection.


The BU-CMD welcomes rolling submissions to our small molecule screening collection from internal research groups. Please contact Ravi Chetree for more information on submitting your compounds.


If you are a synthetic organic chemist interested in submitting your compounds to the BU-CMD collection for CLC screening, please contact Lauren Brown for more details.

Forms and Instructions

Please fill out a Compound Submission Form for any of the following submissions:

  • Samples for purification
  • Samples to be added to the CMLD Collection
  • Samples to be distributed to a biological collaborator

It is imperative that you clearly label all samples and sample sets. The information that you fill out on each Compound Submission Form should be applicable to all compounds submitted. If this is not the case, fill out and submit a separate form for each set.

Right click, "Save As" to download the following Compound Submission Forms:

For sets of 10 or fewer compounds, use the Compound Submission Form for under 10 Compounds.

For larger sets of compounds, use the Compound Submission Form for over 10 Compounds.

UPDATE: Please review the Guidelines for Structure Drawing before you submit compounds.

The CMLD-BU is a NIGMS-Funded Center
