May 2011 Author: ()

Reaxys is a workflow solution which combines reaction and substance search in organic, organometallic and inorganic chemistry. In order to provide the broad variety of compound data for the Reaxys database, a specific program is applied to serve the sophisticated process of extracting compound and property information from scientific documents. One major component of the indexing program is a structure editor, which has to provide particular functionalities to input chemical structures with all necessary details. These functionalities were not available in ‘out-of-the-box’ solutions previously.
