Solve chemistry research problems in half the time
with Reaxys

The modern chemist rarely has the luxury of leisurely research. Success means being first to market with a new pharmaceutical or chemical that is produced safely and efficiently, so the pressure is on scientists to find answers quickly. Reading through long lists of literature to find single data points or viable experimental procedures is not the fastest route to success.

What our customers say

Optimizing reaction conditions and synthesis routes for API production

So much data on pharmaceutical synthesis is available that it can be very challenging to find relevant information, especially when it's buried in longer texts. Dr. Anders Lohse of NCK is very happy with the data and answers that Reaxys quickly delivers for their work on planning and optimizing reaction conditions and synthesis routes for pharmaceutical ingredients.
