Ask Reaxys - Reactions

Chemical Reactions - Reaxys, Elsevier

Reaxys has indexed thousands of reactions (such as 1,2-migration, ipso-nitration, transamination and homologation), including named reactions (such as the Mitsunobu reaction or Barton McCombie deoxygenations). You can easily find them using Ask Reaxys.

For example, if you want to find the Mitsunobu Reaction, just type its name into Ask Reaxys and click “Go”.
