DTP maintains a repository of synthetic compounds and pure natural products that are available to investigators for non-clinical research purposes. The Repository collection is a uniquely diverse set of more than 200,000 compounds that have been either submitted to DTP for biological evaluation or, in some cases, synthesized under DTP auspices. Samples obtained from the NCI/DTP Open Chemicals Repository are available at no cost except for shipping charges. Importantly, investigators should note that chemical structures of these substances are those assigned by the originator of the material and in most cases, the compounds have not been analyzed by DTP for accuracy of structure or for the purity of the sample. Potentially available compounds can be searched by name or NSC number using the “DTP Data Search Tools”. The availability of some samples may be limited by current inventory.
