A source of experimentally validated data about chemical structures, reactions (including multi-step reactions) and properties. It is made up of three chemistry databases:
Beilstein - information on the structures, reactions,and properties of organic carbon compounds, drawn from the journal literature back to the 18th century.
Gmelin - information on structures and properties of inorganic and metal-organic compounds, drawn from the journal and patent literature back to the early 19th century.
Patent Chemistry Database - a new file of organic chemistry information drawn from selected English-language chemical patents (US, WO, EP, 1976- ). Additional historical (1869-1980) patent coverage comes from the Beilstein and Gmelin files.
