FIZ Karlsruhe announces that the complete ReaxysFile™ is now available on STN®

Full depth of Reaxys’ experimentally validated chemical substance data, reactions and associated properties is now available to information professionals via STN, the search tool for precision searching and comprehensive, high-quality coverage of science and intellectual property information.

FIZ Karlsruhe – Leibniz Institute for Information Infrastructure has launched a significantly updated version of ReaxysFileTM on STN InternationalSM, the renowned online service for research and patent information. ReaxysFile now contains the full content from Reaxys®, a leading source for chemical substance and reaction data produced by Elsevier.

Information on several million substances has been added, including inorganic substances and substances derived from patents, bringing the database to the same content level as in Reaxys. This will immediately increase information professionals’ and patent experts’ efficiency when investigating new research opportunities, performing freedom-to-operate searches or looking for reliable chemical substance information. ReaxysFile can also be used to retrieve relevant information for meeting regulatory requirements on chemicals, e.g. REACH.

ReaxysFile is a major factual database containing fully searchable chemical structures and reactions, associated with a depth of chemical and physical properties – all experimentally measured. With historical data dating back to 1771 and the most relevant current publications (journals and patents) in organic, inorganic and organometallic chemistry, ReaxysFile forms a valuable part of STN for information professionals and patent experts looking either for pin-point accuracy concerning a particular substance, or whilst searching for broader research questions.

“We are pleased to see the collaboration with Elsevier further extended by this successful update to the ReaxysFile,” says Rainer Stuike-Prill, Vice President Marketing & Sales at FIZ Karlsruhe. “Reaxys is widely acknowledged as a valuable source for a detailed view of chemistry data. With the addition of the full version of ReaxysFile to STN users benefit from more comprehensive and precise search results.”

Reaxys® and the Reaxys® trademark are owned and protected by Reed Elsevier Properties SA.

Im Focus: Follow Me: Forscher der Jacobs University steuern Unterwasser-Roboter erstmals durch Zeichensprache

Normalerweise werden Unterwasser-Roboter über lange Kabel von Booten oder von Land aus gesteuert. Forschern der Jacobs University in Bremen ist nun ein Durchbruch in der Mensch-Maschine-Kommunikation gelungen: Erstmals konnten sie einen Unterwasser-Roboter mit Hilfe von Gesten navigieren. Eine spezielle Kamera half dabei, die Zeichensprache in Befehle umzusetzen. Die Feldtests fanden im Rahmen des EU-geförderten Projektes CADDY „Cognitive Autonomous Diving buddy“ statt.

Archäologische Untersuchungen im Ozean und vergleichbare komplexe Forschungsprojekte unter Wasser sind auf die Unterstützung von Robotern angewiesen, um in...

Im Focus: Lactate for Brain Energy

Nerve cells cover their high energy demand with glucose and lactate. Scientists of the University of Zurich now provide new support for this. They show for the first time in the intact mouse brain evidence for an exchange of lactate between different brain cells. With this study they were able to confirm a 20-year old hypothesis.

In comparison to other organs, the human brain has the highest energy requirements. The supply of energy for nerve cells and the particular role of lactic acid...

Im Focus: Laser-Prozesssimulation erstmals auch als App verfügbar

Die Simulation von Prozessen bei der Lasermaterialbearbeitung ist in den letzten Jahren immer besser geworden. Die Software kann heute relativ gut voraussagen, was am Werkstück passiert. Leider ist sie hochkomplex und erfordert viel Rechenzeit. Durch eine clevere Vereinfachung können Experten vom Fraunhofer-Institut für Lasertechnik ILT erstmals eine Simulationssoftware anbieten, die Prozesse in Echtzeit rechnet und auch auf Tablets oder Smartphones läuft. Mit der schnellen Software lassen sich teure Versuche einsparen und noch besser optimale Prozessparameter finden.

Eine verlässliche Simulation von Laserprozessen war bislang eine Sache für Experten. Mit ausgefeilten Software-Paketen und viel Zeit auf Computerclustern...
