Thieme introduces SynOne – a new discovery tool for synthetic chemistry

Thieme has introduced a new tool that enables the scientific community to search, browse, and discover selected publications from the Thieme Chemistry portfolio - SynOne.

Organised systematically by compound classes to ensure easy access, SynOne links up content from journals and reference works – including SYNTHESIS, SYNLETT, SYNFACTS, Science of Synthesis and Pharmaceutical Substances. The innovative interface offers organic chemists fast access to relevant and reliable syntheses in context.

 SynOne enables users to use novel and intuitive ways of browsing compound classes as well as search and discover selected Thieme Chemistry content. It’s possible to search for molecules of interest and break them down into potential precursors. Users can identify useful functional groups and related compounds. 

SynOne’s content is organised by compound classes, allowing for a systematic search: Within a few clicks, users can access reliable content relating to their chosen product class. The content can be browsed in tree view, grid view and map view.

‘The browsing options offer a perfect choice for any device. The grid view is ideal for mobile devices, while the map view keeps other potential compounds visible to the user and allows for serendipitous discoveries of new paths to target structures,’ says Dr Fiona Shortt de Hernandez, director for digital services and strategic partnerships, Thieme Chemistry. ‘Tree view is the traditional folder view with a mouse-over-structure feature highlighting chemical nomenclature. The organisation of organic synthetic methods by product class hierarchy was designed in cooperation with chemical researchers and has proven very effective in our reference resource Science of Synthesis.’

Users can also search for content via metadata search terms or draw and upload structures. The search machine will then find all the relevant information sources enabling the researcher to start working on new ways of designing and constructing molecules.

Users can search for selected functional groups across several SynOne categories, for example, organometallics, hetarenes and hydrocarbons, as well as special topics. Within a few clicks users can gain access to current awareness articles from SYNFACTS, primary literature journal articles in SYNTHESIS and SYNLETT, full-text synthetic methodology reviews in Science of Synthesis and encyclopedic information from Pharmaceutical Substances. In this way the chemist can get an interesting and accurate overview of a chosen topic very quickly. They can also identify new areas of interest as well as related information and reactions.

Searching SynOne is free and requires no registration. Full access to journal or database articles is available to users with individual or institutional subscriptions to the respective sources.

SynOne helps put synthesis in context. Each of the Thieme Chemistry publications covered in SynOne is supported by an editorial board of internationally renowned experts who ensure that chemical researchers are presented with the latest and – even more importantly – most relevant research in their fields.
