Text Search

This page allows you to search the entire ChemSynthesis database using a number of criteria. Text search is the fastest and the easiest way to search the database. You just enter a value/keyword and click on the search button. You can search for substances by IUPAC, full and partial trade name, InChIKey, CAS Registry Number, molecular formula, molecular weight and journal title.

How to use Text search?

To begin searching the database, simply enter the information to be searched into the appropriate text field.

Simple text search

Please select appropriate fields and enter the data you are looking for:

Search by chemical name
This allows you to search for a substance by chemical name. The program will search for all the names including synonyms. Example: indole or 2-phenyl-1H-benzimidazole

Search by Cas number
This allows you to search for a substance by CAS registry number. Example: 108-85-0

Search by EINECS number
This allows you to search for a substance by EINECS number. Example: 214-895-2

Search by MDL number
This allows you to search for a substance by MDL number. Example: MFCD00022266

Search by InChIKey
This allows you to search for a substance by InChIKey data. Example: FCJSHPDYVMKCHI-UHFFFAOYAU or FCJSHPDYVMKCHI

Search by molecular formula
This allows you to search for a substance by molecular formula. There are 2 options: you may search for an exact molecular formula or for a part of the formula. Example: C13H10O2 or C13H10

Search by synthesis reference
This allows you to enter the title of the journal. The search will return all substances from the entered journal. The list of journals is available at the main page. Example: Canadian Journal of Chemistry

Advanced text search

This allows you to combine different field searches. All searches that exist on the form are combined (using the Boolean AND operator) when the search button is clicked, and the resulting hit list provides only those hits that satisfy all the search terms.

Chemical Name Cas Number Synthesis Reference
Molecular Formula Molecular Weight InChIKey

For example, you can find all indoles from the Journal of Organic Chemistry. You just enter "indole" as the chemical name and "Journal of Organic Chemistry" as the synthesis reference.
