Designed by chemists, Reaxys is a web-based, chemical search engine that allows you to search for chemical reactions, (parts of) chemical structures and substance properties.
In this LibGuide, you can find more information about the possibilities of Reaxys, using the navigational tabs at the top of the screen.
Reaxys is a highly curated, easy-to-use, decision support tool, built on high-quality data and harnessing the power of advanced analytics, machine learning and AI. It is also the leading database for bioactivity data. Researchers and students use Reaxys to find, connect and utilize chemistry literature, patents, and property & reaction data to expand their knowledge, accelerate research and advance science. Reaxys also supports teaching excellence in chemistry education.
