August  03, 2015 - 

The summer 2015 new STN release extends for the first time the platform’s chemical search capabilities to Markush structures. MARPAT, produced by CAS, enables access to the rapidly growing number of generic structures disclosed in patents, and is tightly integrated with CAplusSM for related patent bibliographic information.

In addition, a number of new databases extends new STN’s subject content to additional areas of science and technology, and expands its chemistry content:

  • COMPENDEX and INSPEC® - Engineering
  • TULSA, ENCOMPLIT and ENCOMPPAT - Petroleum, energy (subscriber access only)
  • REAXYSFILESub and REAXYSFILEBib - Chemical substance information and associated references

Other highlights of the new release confirm the importance of customer feedback in driving new and enhanced functionality:

  • Export support for XML and BizInt Smart Charts increases the ability to share, analyze and report search results
  • New non-Java structure editor eliminates Java dependencies
  • CPC and IPC thesauri help searchers incorporate classification codes into search strategies
  • Numerous workflow and interface refinements enable greater efficiency and usability

The new STN platform is available to fixed fee customers, including those with Global Value Pricing and Search Service Value Pricing agreements.
