New STN Breaks Ground with Markush Structure Search and Enhanced Content for IP Exploration

05.08.2015

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.”

Im Focus: Attoseconds break into atomic interior

A newly developed laser technology has enabled physicists in the Laboratory for Attosecond Physics (jointly run by LMU Munich and the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics) to generate attosecond bursts of high-energy photons of unprecedented intensity. This has made it possible to observe the interaction of multiple photons in a single such pulse with electrons in the inner orbital shell of an atom.

In order to observe the ultrafast electron motion in the inner shells of atoms with short light pulses, the pulses must not only be ultrashort, but very...

Im Focus: Good vibrations feel the force

A group of researchers led by Andrea Cavalleri at the Max Planck Institute for Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) in Hamburg has demonstrated a new method enabling precise measurements of the interatomic forces that hold crystalline solids together. The paper Probing the Interatomic Potential of Solids by Strong-Field Nonlinear Phononics, published online in Nature, explains how a terahertz-frequency laser pulse can drive very large deformations of the crystal.

By measuring the highly unusual atomic trajectories under extreme electromagnetic transients, the MPSD group could reconstruct how rigid the atomic bonds are...

International research team makes important step on the path to solving certification problems

Quantum computers may one day solve algorithmic problems which even the biggest supercomputers today can’t manage. But how do you test a quantum computer to...

Im Focus: In best circles: First integrated circuit from self-assembled polymer

For the first time, a team of researchers at the Max-Planck Institute (MPI) for Polymer Research in Mainz, Germany, has succeeded in making an integrated circuit (IC) from just a monolayer of a semiconducting polymer via a bottom-up, self-assembly approach.

In the self-assembly process, the semiconducting polymer arranges itself into an ordered monolayer in a transistor. The transistors are binary switches used...
