This content is a preprint and has not undergone peer review at the time of posting.


Motivation: Herbal compounds exhibit a rich source of diverse molecular scaffolds with a high level of structural complexity that is crucial for in silico and in vitro screening in the drug discovery process. Results: The Persian Herbal Constituents Database (PHCD) has been designed as a free webserver for providing useful information on many famous Persian medicinal herbs and their phytochemical ingredients. The PHCD facilitate in-depth plant and chemical searches by name, physicochemical properties, substructure, and molecular similarity using multiple advanced search functions. Availability: PHCD is freely available at: https://persianherb.com.
