  • 1.
    • Georgia State University
    • Robert Tomaszewski
    • Science Librarian
    • [email_address]
  • 2.
    • Beilstein – Handbook of Organic Chemistry
    • (1 st Ed. 1881)
    • Gmelin – Handbook of Inorganic & Organometallic Chemistry (1 st Ed. 1817)
    • MDL CrossFire Commander – One of interfaces to Beilstein & Gmelin. (STN, Dialog, other MDL)
  • 3.  
  • 4.
    • Today, "Beilstein" represents the Handbook, Beilstein Online, CrossFire, CrossFire plus Reactions, and CrossFire Gmelin, Autonom, Current Facts, and more.
    • Client software on all computers in the Library and Chemistry Department.

    • 1881 - 1st Ed. Handbook of Organic Chemistry
    • By Friedrich Konrad Beilstein (Russian chemist)
    • 1885 - 2nd edition
    • 1906 - 3rd Ed. and death of Beilstein
    • 1918 - 4th Ed. by German Chemical Society
    • 1984-1998 - Print 5th Supple./4th Ed. (covers 1960-1979).
    • Only v. 17-27 (heterocycles) published (English). Ceased publication in 1998.
    • 1994 - Beilstein CrossFire introduced.
    • (Handbuch migrated to a database in 1980’s).
  • 10.
    • 2007 Elsevier acquired Beilstein database from frankfurt-based Beilstein Institute (Full Ownership)
    • 1 st major open access chemistry journal – Beilstein J. of Organic Chemistry
  • 11.
    • Organics (<255 “heavy” atoms)
    • Organometallics with Li, Na, K, Rb, Cs, Mg, Ca, Sr, and Ba central atoms
    • Organometallic carbides, cyanides, cyanates, and thiocyanates with C-metal bonds
    • Since 2002
    • Biomolecules e.g., hormones, enzymes, & carbohydrates
    • Mixtures & Polymers
  • 12.
    • Only about 50% of the compounds have CAS Registry Numbers.
    • Name searching is unreliable since Beilstein has relatively few synonyms.
    • Only sure search is a “ Structure Search .”
  • 13.
    • 1771-1959 - Comprehensive organic journal coverage.
    • 1869-1959 – Comprehensive patent coverage.
    • 1960-1979 - Patents & 2,000 journals selectively reviewed.
  • 14.
    • 1980-1994 – Cut back to 80 prime journals increasing over time to 120 journals (no patents).
    • 1980+ - Abstracts included.
    • 1995 - Increased to 180 journals, adding ecotox & pharmacology coverage.
    • Currently ~220 journals covered.
  • 15.
    • Inorganics
    • Switched to English in ~1982
    • Since 1971
    • Organometallics
      • except Li, Na, K, Rb, Cs, Mg, Ca, Sr, & Ba central atoms
      • Incl. metal-carbon bonds except carbides, cyanides, cyanates, and thiocyanates.
  • 16.
    • 1996 – Gmelin CrossFire introduced
    • 1997 – Gmelin Inst. closed. Print version ceased
    • 1995-1999 – Data gap: minimal coverage in online database
    • 2000+ - Gmelin CrossFire produced by Gesellschaft Deutscher Chemiker and supplied by MDL
  • 17.
    • ~10 million compounds
    • with up to ~425 properties (i.e., Fields)
    • ~36 million “facts”
    • ~18 million properties & spectra
    • ~9 million eco-toxicological/pharmacology
    • ~9 million reaction details (e.g., temperature, pressure, solvent, yield, etc.)
    • ~10 million reactions
    • ~2 million literature references
  • 18.
    • 2.1 million compounds with up to ~500 properties (fields)
    • 1.6 million reactions
    • 1.1 million literature references
  • 19.  
  • 20.  
  • 21.  
  • 22.
    • By structure or sub-structure
    • By numerical values of properties
    • By text, e.g. bibliographic information
    • Predefined search forms
    • By browsing indexes
