Properties, analytical methods and chemical research topics (keywords, concepts)

Authors typically mention analytical data together with a chemical compound to prove that the chemical compound has been isolated. Besides that, many methods or concepts which are not directly linked to a chemical compound, are discussed in the document itself.

We would like to understand from you if chemical concepts/methods/properties are only relevant in combination with a compound and/or if they are relevant without a relationship to a compound or compound class.

Example: if you are interested to find some literature about the method NMR, do you want to retrieve all articles and patents where NMR has been used to characterize compounds (see answer 4) or do you only want to find articles, where NMR methods have been discussed and reviewed (see answers 1 to 3) as major topic of the article or review).

A chemical concept/method (e.g. spectroscopic method (like NMR) or a named reaction) should be found with a keyword search as a research topic if…

it is mentioned in the title or abstract

Elsevier Reaxys Case Study

Medium Enterprise Pharmaceuticals Company

Introduction

This case study of a medium enterprise pharmaceuticals company is based on a July 2021 survey of Elsevier Reaxys customers by TechValidate, a 3rd-party research service. The profiled company asked to have their name blinded to protect their confidentiality.

“Relevant literature for problematic synthesis. Retrosynthesis of target molecule.”

“Reaxys is very handy for junior chemists to look for reaction details and some extent to see the cost of reagents.”

“Patent abstracts and claims reduce the time invested in screening full patent documents.”

“Supplier availability.”

“It reduces the time for literature search in designing schemes for the synthesis and in turn reducing the time one spends on synthesis.”
