All the chemistry answers in each search - Reaxys |Elsevier Solutions

Use Quick Search and Query Builder to find answers faster

If a research solution requires separate search queries to retrieve literature, patents, property data, bioactivity data and commercial availability information, it’s costing scientists time. It’s also difficult to ensure consistent search terminology if the query forms have different requirements or use different search algorithms.

With Reaxys, both Quick Search and Query Builder enable retrieval of the whole range chemistry information contained in the database, so there's no need to worry about making multiple searches with different query forms.
