Chemical structure search involves searching for a specific spatial arrangement of molecules in a given patent or nonpatent document. It involves the searching of chemical compound structures, from a large collection of sequences published globally. Structure searches are useful when broadly related groups of substances contain a similar fragment of the biological activity of a compound related to a particular substructure.
Generally, the chemical structure searches are required when novelty lies in a specific chemical compound or entity. If the structure is new, it becomes difficult to search the structure with a common name or IUPAC name.
The chemical structure search involves:
Focusing on particular structural features.
Excluding unwanted features.
Avoiding the complexities of nomenclature.
Assessment of novelty in the compound structure.
Correlating the structure with chemical or physical properties or biological activities.
Linking the structure to chemical reaction databases to see model compounds or to look for specific reaction conditions.
Searching for competitive products or market leads. We at LogicApt provide the impactful search as we have a dedicated team of relevant technical experts like pharmacists, agriculture scientists, chemical engineers etc equipped with relevant databases like STN, Chem Sure, Chem Spider etc and tools required for conducting a comprehensive structure search.
Our team is experienced in conducting following structures:
Exact Chemical Structure Search
Chemical Substructure Search
Chemical Property Search
Chemical Reaction Search
Chemical structure search is performed to explore a database with the help of chemical structures and formulas. Searching is made more efficient with the help of relevant synonyms of the chemical structure we are going to search for. LogicApt provide effective search strategy used in patent database to dig out each and every relevant prior art reference. We do searches on free chemical search databases, such as chem spider or paid database services such as STN (CAPLUS, REGISTRY, MARPAT etc.).
