This session teaches substance and reaction searching techniques in Reaxys and SciFinder. You will learn how to build effective structure, substructure and reaction queries, and analyze and refine your answer sets. Some of the techniques that we will discuss include controlling substitution (defining generics and R groups, locking atoms and rings, adding variable points of attachment), mapping atoms, and forbidding transformations. We recommend basic familiarity with chemical structure searching. Please bring your laptop.
