Reaxys, Web-based Access to Beilstein and Gmelin Databases
Reaxys is a new web-based platform for searching organic, inorganic and organometallic chemical information by reaction, structure, property data, and text. Reaxys provides access to the Beilstein Handbook (organic compounds 1771- ), Gmelin Handbook (inorganic and organometallic compounds 1817-1975) and the Patent Chemistry Database (organic and life sciences patents from 1976). The Beilstein and Gmelin Handbooks are essential, long-recognized sources of critically-evaluated data, augmented here with indexing of more current core journal literature in each area.
