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.

A new research project at the TH Mittelhessen focusses on the development of a novel light weight design concept for leisure boats and yachts. Professor Stephan Marzi from the THM Institute of Mechanics and Materials collaborates with Krake Catamarane, which is a shipyard located in Apolda, Thuringia.
The project is set up in an international cooperation with Professor Anders Biel from Karlstad University in Sweden and the Swedish company Lamera from...
Superconductivity has fascinated scientists for many years since it offers the potential to revolutionize current technologies. Materials only become superconductors - meaning that electrons can travel in them with no resistance - at very low temperatures. These days, this unique zero resistance superconductivity is commonly found in a number of technologies, such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
Future technologies, however, will harness the total synchrony of electronic behavior in superconductors - a property called the phase. There is currently a...
How do some neutron stars become the strongest magnets in the Universe? A German-British team of astrophysicists has found a possible answer to the question of how these so-called magnetars form. Researchers from Heidelberg, Garching, and Oxford used large computer simulations to demonstrate how the merger of two stars creates strong magnetic fields. If such stars explode in supernovae, magnetars could result.
How Do the Strongest Magnets in the Universe Form?
A hot, molten Earth would be around 5% larger than its solid counterpart. This is the result of a study led by researchers at the University of Bern. The difference between molten and solid rocky planets is important for the search of Earth-like worlds beyond our Solar System and the understanding of Earth itself.
Rocky exoplanets that are around Earth-size are comparatively small, which makes them incredibly difficult to detect and characterise using telescopes. What...
Scientists at the Max Planck Institute for Chemical Physics of Solids in Dresden, Princeton University, the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and the University of the Chinese Academy of Sciences have spotted a famously elusive particle: The axion – first predicted 42 years ago as an elementary particle in extensions of the standard model of particle physics.
The team found signatures of axion particles composed of Weyl-type electrons (Weyl fermions) in the correlated Weyl semimetal (TaSe₄)₂I. At room temperature,...
