In-depth chemical substance and reaction data particularly useful for compound synthesis. Reaxys includes three core chemistry information databases: Beilstein, Gmelin, and Patent Chemistry Database.


The reaxys database:

  • constitutes the merger of three databases: Crossfire Beilstein; CrossFire Gmelin and Patent Chemistry Database
  • supports research and fuels discovery by integrating reaction and substance data search with synthesis planning
  • provides access to relevant, actionable results; experimentally validated information

Search, analysis and workflow tools include:

  • synthesis planner to design optimum synthesis routes
  • multi-step reactions to identify precusor reactions underlying synthesis of target compounds
  • ability to generate structure query from names or phrases
  • search result filters by key properties; synthesis yield
  • results visualization
  • similarity search
  • transformation analysis
