Filter and refine results to get to the precise answer quickly

Providing the shortest path from question to answer goes beyond search technology. The display of results is an essential aspect of ensuring that users can easily see the results they need and quickly navigate between aspects of results.

Designed in a user-centric process to ensure that scientists’ needs are met, Reaxys has a streamlined interface for displaying, filtering and drilling down into the details of hit sets.

Optimized results displayed

Reaxys results are displayed in a clean, content-appropriate manner with easy navigation between lists of relevant documents, substance results, reaction results and additional information.

Reaxys offers multiple options to filter and refine hit sets. - Reaxys |Elsevier Solutions

Every result can be filtered with relevant filters for that result. For example:

  • Substance results can be filtered by parameters such as structure, substance class, molecular weight and availability
  • Reaction results can be filtered by parameters such as yield, reagent, catalyst and solvent
  • Bioactive compounds can be filtered by target, clinical phases and pX value

In addition, all results can be filtered by publication factors such as document type, publication year and patent assignee.
