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.
