Reaxys is a web-based system for searching the world's most extensive collection of organic, organo-metallic, and inorganic chemistry data. Reaxys enables you to search by structure, substructure, reaction, text, and property data.   Being based on the CrossFire Beilstein, CrossFire Gmelin and Patent Chemistry databases, Reaxys has a long history beginning with chemical data from 1771. The information you find in Reaxys originates from around 3800 journals and patents from various patent offices. Reaxys has become unmatched as a source for deeply indexed information, especially for experimental reaction data. It aims at most efficiently supporting a chemist with relevant, validated facts and figures or procedure texts.
