With the development of the Internet, Semantic search technology has been applied to various fields. In the pharmaceutical field, because of the huge number and wide range of the drugs on the market, an effective semantic retrieval system can bring great convenience for doctors. However, for doctors who have no background knowledge of semantic technologies, to write formal semantics search statement is still very difficult. Therefore, this paper proposes a pharmaceutical semantic database query mechanism which based on keywords. In this query mechanism, by analysis of ontology database and establishment of Chinese - English translation mapping, we can Transform Chinese keywords into English keywords. Then match the English keywords with ontology database to build a list of triples. And finally, formed Corresponding SPARQL query by analyze the list.
