FIZ CHEMIE to present enhanced ChemInform retrieval and to announce CINF scholarship winners

20.07.2012
German Chemistry Information Provider FIZ CHEMIE invites attendees of the Fall 2012 ACS Meeting in Philadelphia, PA, to take a first look at the new web-based retrieval system currently under development to further enhance searching in the popular reaction databases ChemInform RX (CIRX) and Solid Phase Organic Reactions (SPORE) / Customers and interested parties are encouraged to contribute recommendations to the new user interface / On Sunday, August 19, at the ACS Meeting the Division of Chemical Information (CINF) of the American Chemical Society (ACS) and FIZ CHEMIE will announce the winners of their jointly awarded “CINF Scholarship for Scientific Excellence”

FIZ CHEMIE invites attendees of the Fall 2012 ACS Meeting in Philadelphia (19-23, 2012) to take a first look at the new web-based retrieval system currently developed to further enhance searching in the popular reaction databases ChemInform RX (CIRX) and Solid Phase Organic Reactions (SPORE). CIRX contains more than 1.5 million reactions published since 1990. SPORE lists 47,000 reactions from 7,000 publications and patents.

New search functions implemented into the new user interface allow improved retrieval of reactions and reaction pathways sought by researchers to prepare novel compounds. A first version of the advanced information system will be on display at the FIZ CHEMIE booth (No. 329) in the exhibition accompanying the 244th ACS National Meeting. Visitors are invited to contribute to the further development of the interface. Suggestions can be put forward at the booth or by filling in an online questionnaire.

For more than 30 years the German information provider produces sophisticated technical information services to support modern-day research. Traditionally the retrieval systems are set up in close cooperation with customers. With effect of June 1, of this year, FIZ CHEMIE is marketing CIRX and SPORE directly.

To promote advancement in computer-aided chemical information and encourage young academics to go into the field of chemical information research the Division of Chemical Information (CINF) of the American Chemical Society (ACS) and FIZ CHEMIE jointly award the “CINF Scholarship for Scientific Excellence”. Up to three scholarships are awarded to young scientists delivering outstanding contributions, valued at $ 1,000 each. The winners of this year´s scholarship will be announced at the ACS Meeting on Sunday, August 19. The honored scientists will be invited to present their posters during the Welcoming Reception of the CINF Division and again at the Sci-Mix session on Monday night, August 20. The meeting lasts until August 23, 2012.

Im Focus: Energy-autonomous and wireless monitoring protects marine gearboxes

The IPH presents a solution at HANNOVER MESSE 2015 to make ship traffic more reliable while decreasing the maintenance costs at the same time. In cooperation with project partners, the research institute from Hannover, Germany, has developed a sensor system which continuously monitors the condition of the marine gearbox, thus preventing breakdowns. Special feature: the monitoring system works wirelessly and energy-autonomously. The required electrical power is generated where it is needed – directly at the sensor.

As well as cars need to be certified regularly (in Germany by the TÜV – Technical Inspection Association), ships need to be inspected – if the powertrain stops...

Im Focus: 3-D satellite, GPS earthquake maps isolate impacts in real time

Method produced by UI researcher could improve reaction time to deadly, expensive quakes

When an earthquake hits, the faster first responders can get to an impacted area, the more likely infrastructure--and lives--can be saved.

Im Focus: Atlantic Ocean overturning found to slow down already today

The Atlantic overturning is one of Earth’s most important heat transport systems, pumping warm water northwards and cold water southwards. Also known as the Gulf Stream system, it is responsible for the mild climate in northwestern Europe. 

Scientists now found evidence for a slowdown of the overturning – multiple lines of observation suggest that in recent decades, the current system has been...

Im Focus: Robot inspects concrete garage floors and bridge roadways for damage

Because they are regularly subjected to heavy vehicle traffic, emissions, moisture and salt, above- and underground parking garages, as well as bridges, frequently experience large areas of corrosion. Most inspection systems to date have only been capable of inspecting smaller surface areas.

From April 13 to April 17 at the Hannover Messe (hall 2, exhibit booth C16), engineers from the Fraunhofer Institute for Nondestructive Testing IZFP will be...
