Synthesis Planning from Your Desktop
Learn to search effectively and efficiently for synthesis information using a host of online materials. Gain an overview of past methods with the Science of Synthesis, and then learn to build retrosynthetic plans using the new SciFindern Retrosynthesis tool and the Reaxys Synthesis Planner, as well as learning effective techniques of searching for reactions in both databases. Round out your searching by learning more about your reagents with EROS, Fieser, and other properties and hazards sources. Attendees should be comfortable drawing chemical structures using ChemDraw or another structure editor.
This seminar is aimed at chemists performing organic and organometallic synthesis. No prior experience with the databases is necessary.
