Reaxys API: Flexible information delivery and real-time - Reaxys | Elsevier Solutions


Access Reaxys through your own system with the Application Programming Interface

Reaxys supports the retrieval of chemistry reaction and substance data, including bioactivities, as well as citations, through an application that can be implemented for HTML web browsers on several platforms.

Access Reaxys through your own system with the API - Reaxys |Elsevier Solutions

An example of Reaxys Medicinal Chemistry integrated into an existing research workflow via its API.

The Reaxys Application Programming Interface (API) provides a different way of accessing the Reaxys database, allowing programmers to create their own direct interface to the native Reaxys data. The API retrieves the data in XML format.

This functionality is available from the Reaxys API and Reaxys Medicinal Chemistry API. KNIME nodes and Pipeline Pilot components are available to fully support work with those systems.

Contact us to set up a meeting to review how the API could work for you.
