Updated monthly, Reaxys is a Web-based system for searching the world's most extensive collection of organic, organometallic, and inorganic chemistry data. Reaxys enables you to search by structure, substructure, reaction, text, and property data. Expert chemists carefully select journals and patents so that only high-quality, experimental data are included in Reaxys.

Organic Chemistry

Reaxys provides all the organic chemistry information synthetic chemists need to explore the chemical space surrounding lead discovery projects - from identifying synthetic routes to exploring pharmacological, ecological and toxicological outcomes. Specific bioassay results, logPs, toxicity values and other valuable data are all directly accessible.

Inorganic and Organometallic Chemistry

Reaxys provides deep coverage of structures, properties and citations in inorganic and organometallic chemistry, including phosphors, catalysts and polymers and other substances used in electronics, magnetics, optics and nanoscience. It covers general inorganic compounds, such as nano materials, zeolites, laser materials, coordination and solid-state compounds, glasses and ceramic materials, alloys, doped materials and minerals. This data is sourced from the world-renowned Gmelin database.

The content in Reaxys comes from the following sources:

Batch querying refers to a sequence of stored searches, which can be executed at once. Batch querying can be done in Reaxys using either SD Files or text files. These searches include structure searches and field searches in all contexts of the database. See more details.
