This is a Google Python SDK that provides access to the Google Cloud Spanner API. The API is a scalable, enterprise-grade, globally-distributed, relational database service that is built for the cloud. It allows you to combine the benefits of relational database structure with non-relational horizontal scale. Google Cloud helps developers build with cloud tools and infrastructure, applications, maps and devices.
SureChem, traditionally a chemical patent search site, responded to its "customers' requests for a direct pipeline to patent chemistry data that gave them batch access, the ability to easily integrate with internal tools, and no limitations on how they accessed or use the data" with the launch of SureChemDirect. According to SureChem founder, Nicko Goncharoff, the SureChemDirect API "enables users to directly search [the SureChem] database" for chemical patents and chemical structures within their own toolkits.
