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.For additional Information

Whether you call it effervescent, fizzy, or sparkling, carbonated water is making a comeback as a beverage. Aside from quenching thirst, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have discovered a new use for these "bubbly" concoctions that will have major impact on the manufacturer of the world's thinnest, flattest, and one most useful materials -- graphene.
As graphene's popularity grows as an advanced "wonder" material, the speed and quality at which it can be manufactured will be paramount. With that in mind,...
Physicists at the University of Bonn have managed to create optical hollows and more complex patterns into which the light of a Bose-Einstein condensate flows. The creation of such highly low-loss structures for light is a prerequisite for complex light circuits, such as for quantum information processing for a new generation of computers. The researchers are now presenting their results in the journal Nature Photonics.
Light particles (photons) occur as tiny, indivisible portions. Many thousands of these light portions can be merged to form a single super-photon if they are...
For the first time, scientists have shown that circular RNA is linked to brain function. When a RNA molecule called Cdr1as was deleted from the genome of mice, the animals had problems filtering out unnecessary information – like patients suffering from neuropsychiatric disorders.
While hundreds of circular RNAs (circRNAs) are abundant in mammalian brains, one big question has remained unanswered: What are they actually good for? In the...
An experimental small satellite has successfully collected and delivered data on a key measurement for predicting changes in Earth's climate.
The Radiometer Assessment using Vertically Aligned Nanotubes (RAVAN) CubeSat was launched into low-Earth orbit on Nov. 11, 2016, in order to test new...
A study led by scientists of the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science in Hamburg presents evidence of the coexistence of superconductivity and “charge-density-waves” in compounds of the poorly-studied family of bismuthates. This observation opens up new perspectives for a deeper understanding of the phenomenon of high-temperature superconductivity, a topic which is at the core of condensed matter research since more than 30 years. The paper by Nicoletti et al has been published in the PNAS.
Since the beginning of the 20th century, superconductivity had been observed in some metals at temperatures only a few degrees above the absolute zero (minus...
