Reaxys — a chemistry research tool
With an intuitive user interface and easy-to-use search tools, Reaxys delivers chemistry and chemistry-related information in the form of literature and patents, excerpted properties of substances (chemical, physical, spectral, bioactivity), and details on reactions and experimental procedures. Functions to help process results allow evaluation and selection of answers to a query.
We invite you to explore Reaxys and participate in discussions below: post a comment, write a question, share an answer. We hope to trigger thoughts and curiosity as you learn about cheminformatics and the tools available to find chemistry information.
Once you have login information from your Facilitator, begin exploring Reaxys at the following link:
You will find a description of Reaxys in the Reaxys Fact Sheet and a quick overview of how to use Reaxys in the Quick Start Guide. The Reaxys Support Center is also a good place to find some search workflows, including the following:
Materials and Resources
As topics arise in the discussion, we will develop and post activities to help you explore the topics further in Reaxys. These resources, which you can download from the top of this page, give you:
An introduction to finding properties for substances in Reaxys (Reaxys_PropertiesSearch_200117)
An introduction to performing text searches in Reaxys (Reaxys_TextSearch_230117)
An overview of main approaches to searching substances in Reaxys (Reaxys_SubstanceSearch_270117)
A description of the content and use of Substance Records in Reaxys (Reaxys_SubstanceRecords_030217)
And if you have a particular question that you would like to research in more detail, let your Facilitator know. We welcome the opportunity to help you.
