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: Long-lived storage of a photonic qubit for worldwide teleportation

MPQ scientists achieve long storage times for photonic quantum bits which break the lower bound for direct teleportation in a global quantum network.

Concerning the development of quantum memories for the realization of global quantum networks, scientists of the Quantum Dynamics Division led by Professor...

Detailed calculations show water cloaks are feasible with today's technology

Researchers have developed a water cloaking concept based on electromagnetic forces that could eliminate an object's wake, greatly reducing its drag while...

Im Focus: Scientists channel graphene to understand filtration and ion transport into cells

Tiny pores at a cell's entryway act as miniature bouncers, letting in some electrically charged atoms--ions--but blocking others. Operating as exquisitely sensitive filters, these "ion channels" play a critical role in biological functions such as muscle contraction and the firing of brain cells.

To rapidly transport the right ions through the cell membrane, the tiny channels rely on a complex interplay between the ions and surrounding molecules,...

Im Focus: Towards data storage at the single molecule level

The miniaturization of the current technology of storage media is hindered by fundamental limits of quantum mechanics. A new approach consists in using so-called spin-crossover molecules as the smallest possible storage unit. Similar to normal hard drives, these special molecules can save information via their magnetic state. A research team from Kiel University has now managed to successfully place a new class of spin-crossover molecules onto a surface and to improve the molecule’s storage capacity. The storage density of conventional hard drives could therefore theoretically be increased by more than one hundred fold. The study has been published in the scientific journal Nano Letters.

Over the past few years, the building blocks of storage media have gotten ever smaller. But further miniaturization of the current technology is hindered by...
