Press release from: FIZ Karlsruhe

Full depth of Reaxys’ experimentally validated chemical substance data, reactions and associated properties is now available to information professionals via STN, the search tool for precision searching and comprehensive, high-quality coverage of science and intellectual property information.

Karlsruhe, Germany, November 2012 – FIZ Karlsruhe – Leibniz Institute for Information Infrastructure has launched a significantly updated version of ReaxysFileTM on STN InternationalSM, the renowned online service for research and patent information. ReaxysFile now contains the full content from Reaxys®, a leading source for chemical substance and reaction data produced by Elsevier.

Information on several million substances has been added, including inorganic substances and substances derived from patents, bringing the database to the same content level as in Reaxys. This will immediately increase information professionals’ and patent experts’ efficiency when investigating new research opportunities, performing freedom-to-operate searches or looking for reliable chemical substance information. ReaxysFile can also be used to retrieve relevant information for meeting regulatory requirements on chemicals, e.g. REACH.

ReaxysFile is a major factual database containing fully searchable chemical structures and reactions, associated with a depth of chemical and physical properties – all experimentally measured. With historical data dating back to 1771 and the most relevant current publications (journals and patents) in organic, inorganic and organometallic chemistry, ReaxysFile forms a valuable part of STN for information professionals and patent experts looking either for pin-point accuracy concerning a particular substance, or whilst searching for broader research questions.

“We are pleased to see the collaboration with Elsevier further extended by this successful update to the ReaxysFile,” says Rainer Stuike-Prill, Vice President Marketing & Sales at FIZ Karlsruhe. “Reaxys is widely acknowledged as a valuable source for a detailed view of chemistry data. With the addition of the full version of ReaxysFile to STN users benefit from more comprehensive and precise search results.”

Reaxys® and the Reaxys® trademark are owned and protected by Reed Elsevier Properties SA.
