Synthetic Reaction Updates: new for 2015

The start of 2015 sees change afoot for two of our bibliographic databases: Catalysts & Catalysed Reactions and Methods in Organic Synthesis. To respond to the growing interdisciplinary nature of research in the chemical sciences, we have discontinued these titles and merged them into a new product – Synthetic Reaction Updates.

Synthetic Reaction Updates is a literature updating service keeping you up to date with recent developments in synthetic organic chemistry. Its scope is all synthetic chemistry, with a focus on organic chemistry and interesting transformations of functional groups.

With our new platform, external editors – your peers in the community – are choosing content; so you can be sure that Synthetic Reaction Updates will include the most important and exciting reactions published across a wide range of primary resources in the recent scientific literature.

The updates are presented as easily readable reaction schemes and are also searchable by topic and reaction type (from a list). Plus e-alerts can now be tailored by reaction type. Even better, we do the hard work: searching the literature for you and highlighting the best content. Who knows, with serendipitous discovery, we could send you things you didn’t know you were looking for!

Synthetic Reaction Updates is now live, so make sure you pay our new web pages a visit and sign up to weekly or monthly alerts, tailored for your scientific interests.

  1. Dana Roth says:

    Will the backfiles of CCR and MOS be merged or remain separate files?

  2. Hannah Whitbread says:

    Hi Dana,

    Methods of Organic Synthesis (MOS) and Catalyst and Catalysed Reactions (CCR) will not be merged with the new service, they will remain as separate databases. However, a subscription to Synthetic Reaction Updates will also include access to the discontinued MOS and CCR.

    Best wishes,

  3. Merry Trujillo says:

    Will Synthetic Reaction Updates be included in the RSC Gold package that our university currently subscribes to? Or will we lose access to two titles and need a separate subscription to access this?

    Thank you,
    Merry

    Hi Merry,

    Synthetic Reaction Updates is part of the RSC Gold package, and will be added to all subscriptions when it goes live. You will still be able to access the content in the two discontinued databases, but we won’t be adding anything new.

    Best wishes,
    Dr Serin Dabb, Executive Editor, Data

  5. I think that this statement in your blog post should be added to the description on the home page for the database: “Its scope is all synthetic chemistry, with a focus on organic chemistry and interesting transformations of functional groups.”

  6. Wonderful Article.
