SPRESImobile: 410,000 Chemical Reactions Freely Available at Scientists's Fingertips
Munich, Germany and San Diego, California (March 8, 2012) - InfoChem GmbH - a market leader in structure and reaction handling and retrieval - and Eidogen-Sertanty, Inc. - a pioneer in chemical applications for mobile devices - have released SPRESImobile a new, jointly developed application for Apple iPod, iPhone and iPad devices. The application, featuring an innovative user interface, provides researchers and students worldwide access to InfoChem's ChemReact: a database containing over 410,000 chemical reactions and related information. ChemReact is a representative subset of SPRESI, InfoChem's structure and reaction database which covers reactions published between 1974 and 2010.
"This is an exciting first: an app that puts InfoChem's leading technological expertise to use, allowing mobile access to a relevant subset of SPRESI," said Peter Loew, PhD, Managing Director, InfoChem GmbH. "It's the first time a smart, quick and easy-to-use app has been put to use in this field."
"SPRESImobile provides users with a very easy to use, interactive experience," said Steven M. Muskal, PhD, CEO, Eidogen-Sertanty. "This app is a must-have for scientists who search for molecules and reactions and need supporting reference information."
With SPRESImobile, users can search chemicals by name or structure, browse molecules, conditions, properties and references, and navigate through reactions where a specific chemical is participating either as Reactant or as Product. The commercial availability and journal article links take users to the main suppliers' or publishers' websites. In addition, SPRESImobile enables users to share structures and reactions via email or open them within other mobile applications that support standard .mol or .rxn formats. SPRESImobile uses MMDS by Molecular Materials Informatics for structure editing.
