Found this link that may be of interest to you. It seems to have the chemical structures of many chinese herbs etc -

http://www.bridgat.com/herbs_and_natura … 844_3.html

Don't know if these links are what you are looking for or not, but that is pretty much what I could come up with. I'm sure if you dig further through these links then you might find something else if these are not the sort of stuff that you were looking for.

I hope some of these are of use to you.

Best wishes,

Gavin

Re: Positron emission tomography for diagnosis and staging of bile duct ca

Hi,Gavin,
I want to say thank you first ;I have not checked them all out yet,but from what the few I have checked out, I found what I am looking for and much more. Thanks!
Frankly Gavin,I will never look at  what I wanted from the web sites you suggested,but that is good because you  provided me different  resources in the future  for  researching and purchasing better ingredients through different countries besides China.
BTW,you seem to have a special interest or keen sense in  researching  for companies. Thanks  again and I know I am asking the right person to help me.
God bless.
