Breaking barriers to chemistry information
Barriers to information complicate both research and education. They make it harder for scientists to discover what is new in their field, develop new experiments and build on the great research of the past. They also discourage students by making it tougher to delve into the science they are interested in.
Reaxys is designed to break those barriers. With a highly intuitive interface that interprets queries and quickly retrieves relevant chemistry literature, patent information, valid substance properties and experimental procedures, Reaxys helps institutions streamline research and give faculty and students the freedom to discover.
