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
