The company has been delivering stock and custom chemistry to businesses and research institutions for almost 30 years, and they recognize that Reaxys keeps pace with the time and information demands that they face.


The scientists at Key Organics are always trying to anticipate customer needs and find ways to meet them. Based on ongoing discussions with customers, they evaluate their product portfolio to identify gaps and ensure that they can provide the necessary products.

This requires a highly agile approach to chemistry, which means they need flexible tools, including information solutions. A major issue for them in the past has been the amount of time involved in finding the data they need.


Reaxys proved to be much faster than their previous chemistry research solution. The scientists at Key Organics now use Reaxys to explore new ideas, examine the chemistry published in patents and primary literature, plan compound synthesis and support the generation of analytical data. They appreciate the flexibility of the system and the speed with which they can get answers to questions.
