Discover the completely new Reaxys interface for chemistry research in this upcoming training class offered by the NIH Library. The class will be held Monday, September 18, 1:00 – 2:30 p.m. and is being offered in person in the NIH Library Training Room in Building 10, or as a webinar.
Reaxys is a comprehensive chemistry database with flexible query input, compound synthesis pathway generation, report creation, and detailed literature reviews. Structure and property data are excerpted from essential journals, patents, and textbook chapters, and the information is indexed with chemistry-specific taxonomy.
The class will review:
- Understanding the new Reaxys user interface
- Constructing workflow-based query forms
- Using graphic editors
- Customizing Reaxys user settings
Hands-on exercises will cover:
- Constructing search queries using the Quick Search and Advanced Search forms
- Searching compounds with specific properties
- Searching variable structural features by generating variable structures (Markush structures) in the graphic editor
- Importing and exporting structures, reactions, and queries
- Performing similarity searches, substance searches, and using the Reaction Autoplan feature
