Intellectual Property (IP) search solution integrates comprehensive chemical structure searching with premier patent and non-patent collections for unsurpassed coverage and efficiency
Chemical Abstracts Service (CAS) and FIZ Karlsruhe are delighted to reveal the latest innovations for Intellectual Property (IP) professionals. New STN, a web-based search solution, offers access to essential, curated content in an intuitive interface designed for professional IP searching. Highlights of this most recent release include Markush structure search, additional databases, more export formats and numerous workflow and interface enhancements.
As the number of chemical structures disclosed in patents rapidly increases, it is imperative that IP professionals have the right tools for searching this information efficiently and reliably. The latest release of new STN introduces Markush structure search with delivery of MARPAT® from CAS. Combined with CAS REGISTRY℠ and Derwent Chemical Resource (DCR), new STN provides unsurpassed coverage of generic and exemplified chemical structures.
“Markush search is a necessary feature for anyone searching chemical patents,” said Matthew McBride, Manager, Science IP. “With new STN, I can simultaneously search a single chemical structure across key substance databases, saving time and ensuring my confidence in the results.”
In addition to Markush search capabilities, the latest release includes highly requested engineering, petroleum and energy databases COMPENDEX, INSPEC®, TULSA, ENCOMPLIT and ENCOMPPAT, as well as ReaxysFile™ for chemical substance information and associated references for patent-related searching. The Cooperative Patent Classification (CPC) and International Patent Classification (IPC) thesauri are also available to help users more easily incorporate classification codes into their search strategies.
“Now with 30 databases covering a broad spectrum of science and technology, IP professionals in many disciplines can take advantage of the robust capabilities of the new platform to transform the way they conduct intellectual property searches,” said Dr. Rainer Stuike-Prill, vice president marketing and sales at FIZ Karlsruhe.
The latest release demonstrates the continuing importance of customer feedback in extending functionality and enhancing operational efficiency. An updated structure editor allows searchers to model structures from CAS Registry Numbers®, and new single-click controls simplify cross-file searching between databases. The latest release also supports exporting search results in XML and BizInt file formats, enabling searchers to more flexibly share, analyze and report search results.
“New STN delivers the high-quality information and search power organizations around the world need to protect their valuable intellectual property,” said Christine McCue, CAS vice president marketing. “With this release, we are excited to offer unique capabilities and enhancements, like Markush structure search and new export options that make intellectual property more discoverable and help our customers derive the insight and intelligence that drives the success of their businesses.”
The choice of patent experts, only STN® offers access to trusted scientific and technical information including the authoritative chemistry content from CAS and patent content from Thomson Reuters’ Derwent World Patents Index®. Intellectual property professionals and patent examiners at the world’s major patent offices and research organizations rely on STN for their information needs. STN is operated jointly by CAS and FIZ Karlsruhe worldwide.
Chemical Abstracts Service (CAS), a division of the American Chemical Society, is the world's authority for chemical information and related solutions. Dedicated to the ACS vision of improving people's lives through the transforming power of chemistry, the CAS team of highly trained scientists finds, collects and organizes all publicly disclosed substance information, creating the world's most valuable collection of content that is vital to innovation worldwide. Scientific researchers and patent professionals around the world rely on a suite of research solutions from CAS that enable discovery and facilitate workflows.

Plants and algae use the enzyme Rubisco to fix carbon dioxide, removing it from the atmosphere and converting it into biomass. Algae have figured out a way to increase the efficiency of carbon fixation. They gather most of their Rubisco into a ball-shaped microcompartment called the pyrenoid, which they flood with a high local concentration of carbon dioxide. A team of scientists at Princeton University, the Carnegie Institution for Science, Stanford University and the Max Plank Institute of Biochemistry have unravelled the mysteries of how the pyrenoid is assembled. These insights can help to engineer crops that remove more carbon dioxide from the atmosphere while producing more food.

Our brains house extremely complex neuronal circuits, whose detailed structures are still largely unknown. This is especially true for the so-called cerebral cortex of mammals, where among other things vision, thoughts or spatial orientation are being computed. Here the rules by which nerve cells are connected to each other are only partly understood. A team of scientists around Moritz Helmstaedter at the Frankfiurt Max Planck Institute for Brain Research and Helene Schmidt (Humboldt University in Berlin) have now discovered a surprisingly precise nerve cell connectivity pattern in the part of the cerebral cortex that is responsible for orienting the individual animal or human in space.
The researchers report online in Nature (Schmidt et al., 2017. Axonal synapse sorting in medial entorhinal cortex, DOI: 10.1038/nature24005) that synapses in...

Using ultrafast flashes of laser and x-ray radiation, scientists at the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics (Garching, Germany) took snapshots of the briefest electron motion inside a solid material to date. The electron motion lasted only 750 billionths of the billionth of a second before it fainted, setting a new record of human capability to capture ultrafast processes inside solids!
When x-rays shine onto solid materials or large molecules, an electron is pushed away from its original place near the nucleus of the atom, leaving a hole...
For the first time, physicists have successfully imaged spiral magnetic ordering in a multiferroic material. These materials are considered highly promising candidates for future data storage media. The researchers were able to prove their findings using unique quantum sensors that were developed at Basel University and that can analyze electromagnetic fields on the nanometer scale. The results – obtained by scientists from the University of Basel’s Department of Physics, the Swiss Nanoscience Institute, the University of Montpellier and several laboratories from University Paris-Saclay – were recently published in the journal Nature.
Multiferroics are materials that simultaneously react to electric and magnetic fields. These two properties are rarely found together, and their combined...
