- Essential, Structure-Searchable Chemistry Resource Brings New Compounds and Associated Experimental Data to Researchers
Elsevier Information Systems GmbH, a subsidiary of Elsevier, the leading global publisher of scientific, technical and medical information, is pleased to announce that, as of September 2007, the CrossFire Beilstein database will contain more than ten million compounds, each with associated experimental property data. This important achievement, in conjunction with the significant milestone of ten million reactions reached in June 2006, emphasizes the enduring value of CrossFire Beilstein as the essential first step in life sciences discovery. CrossFire Beilstein's reliable, high quality experimental property data set it apart from other compound/reaction and bibliographic databases, making CrossFire Beilstein an indispensable resource for life sciences researchers.
CrossFire Beilstein extracts high quality data about compounds and reactions from relevant, peer-reviewed publications. As the world's largest factual database in organic chemistry, CrossFire Beilstein includes more than 320 million scientifically measured (not calculated) properties and facts for compounds and reactions. Since acquiring the Beilstein Database in March 2007, Elsevier has continued to expand the database contents, ensuring that the database remains a rich source of chemical and physical property data for planning effective synthetic routes and enhancing research productivity.
CrossFire Beilstein and Patent Chemistry Database together constitute the CrossFire Databases which represent the largest compilation of chemical compounds, reactions and experimental data collated over time from numerous publishers and source types (journals and patents).
