Reaxys @ GSU

  1. 1. Georgia State University<br />Robert Tomaszewski<br />rtomasze@gsu.edu<br />404-413-2870<br />
  2. 2. Reaxys<br />Reaxys is a web-basedsystem for searching organic, inorganic, and organometallic data. Vendor-Elsevier.<br />The interface searches:<br />Beilstein (Organic Chemistry from 1700's)<br />Gmelin (Inorganic Chemistry from 1800's)<br />Patent Chemistry Database (Patents from 1975)<br />
  3. 3. Accessing ReAXYS<br />Access from the Library Website-<br /><ul><li> Article Databases & GALILEO Link
  4. 4. Chemistry Research Guide</li></li></ul><li>Supported Chemical editors<br />- MarvinSketch (ChemAxon)- ISIS/Draw (Symyx)- Symyx Draw (Symyx)- CrossFire Structure Editor (Elsevier)- ChemDraw (CambridgeSoft)<br />Reaxys defaults to MarvinSketch (requires current Java and JRE (Java Runtime Environment)<br />
  5. 5. Platforms for reaxys<br />Windows PC <br />Macintosh PC<br />Linux<br />Reaxys is supported on browsers Internet Explorer, Safari, and Mozilla Firefox<br />
  6. 6. THINK THREEWORDS!<br />Physical<br /> Reactions<br /> Spectra<br />
  7. 7. Background<br />Beilstein- Handbook of Organic Chemistry <br /> (1st Ed. 1881)<br />Gmelin- Handbook of Inorganic & Organometallic Chemistry (1st Ed. 1817)<br />Organic Chemistry and Life Science Patents - (USA-since 1976; World/Europe-since 1978)<br />
  8. 8. Handbook of Organic Chemistry (1st ed. 1881)<br />
  9. 9. BeilsteinHistory<br />1881 - 1st Ed. Handbook of Organic Chemistry <br /> By Friedrich KonradBeilstein (Russian chemist)<br />1885 - 2nd Edition<br />1906 - 3rd Ed. and death of Beilstein<br />1918 - 4th Ed. by German Chemical Society<br />1984-1998 - Print 5th Supple./4th Ed. (covers 1960-1979) <br />Only v. 17-27 (Heterocycles) published (English). Ceased publication in 1998<br />1994 - Beilstein Client ‘CrossFire’ introduced!<br /> (Handbuch migrated to a database in 1980’s)<br />2009 - Reaxys - web-based platform introduced!<br />
  10. 10. Beilstein Literature Coverage<br />1771-1959 - Comprehensive organic journal coverage<br />1869-1959 - Comprehensive patent coverage<br />1960-1979 - Patents & 2,000 journals selectively reviewed<br />
  11. 11. Beilstein Literature Coverage<br />1980-1994 - Cut back to 80 prime journals increasing over time to 120 journals (no patents)<br />1980+ - Abstracts included<br />1995 - Increased to 180 journals, adding ecotox & pharmacology coverage<br />Currently ~220 journals covered<br />
  12. 12. beilstein Today<br />Today, "Beilstein" represents the Handbook, Beilstein Online, CrossFire, CrossFire plus Reactions, and CrossFireGmelin, Autonom, Current Facts, and more.<br />
  13. 13. Beilstein NEWS<br />2007 Elsevier acquired Beilstein database from frankfurt-based Beilstein Institute (Full Ownership) <br /> 1st major open access chemistry journal – Beilstein J. of Organic Chemistry<br />
  14. 14. BeilsteinSearch Note<br />Only about 50% of the compounds have CAS Registry Numbers<br />Name searching is unreliable since Beilstein has relatively few synonyms<br />Only sure search is a “Structure Search”<br />
  15. 15. gmelin<br /><ul><li>1817 (3 vols.) HandbuchderTheoretischenChemie(Leopold Gmelin)

  22. 22. Beilstein Statistics<br />~10 million compounds and ~425 properties<br />~36 million “facts”<br />~18 million properties & spectra<br />~9 million eco-toxicological/pharmacology<br />~9 million reaction details (e.g., temperature, pressure, solvent, yield, etc.,)<br />~10 million reactions<br />~2 million literature references <br />Current data is indexed from over 175 journals<br />

  28. 28. Endnote<br />Yes - When you open the Output tool, select "Literature Management Systems" and then import your hits or range of hits into EndNote or other bibliographic management software. <br />
  29. 29. How to search?<br />By structure, sub-structure <br /> (note - can generate structure from name!)<br />By numerical values of properties<br />By text, author(s) e.g., Bibliographic information<br />Advanced searching for entering complex property/combination queries following the general rule "<field code> <operator> <field value(s)>"<br />
  30. 30. Alerts<br />Need to register (Free) and then you can create alerts for your searches as well as customize your settings (e.g., colors of structure and text, hits per page, and searching options).<br />
