A demonstration of Reaxys and Reaxys Medicinal Chemistry will be presented by Irakli Samkurashvili Ph.D. from Elsevier. Reaxys offers a wealth of experimentally validated chemistry information, and it presents a powerful functionality for synthesis planning and preliminary yield and cost estimation. Reaxys is designed to support a full range of chemistry research. It also is a prime resource for finding reactions, names and formula of substances, physical properties of substances, spectra and natural product information. Light refreshments will be provided.

At the end of this demonstration, participants will be able to:

  • Construct search queries using different tools embedded in Reaxys
  • Import structure/substructure to Reaxys and use it to query the database
  • Search for compounds with specific physical, chemical and biological properties
  • Perform Reaction Similarity search, Substance search and use Reaction Autoplan feature

This workshop will be presented in person at Tompkins-McCaw Library, Lecture Room, 2010, also available streaming at Cabell Library, room 250 and online.
