Extract chemical information from unstructured data into a database

Your Challenge

REPORT - Creating reports or documents often comes with chemical content. Molecules and reactions need to be added with their most important attributes. Static images make the update of the chemical content more difficult than “live” structures, where compound properties are also automatically updated.
FIND - In principal, best decisions can be made if all the available and relevant pieces of information are at our fingertips. However, chemical data exists in many places in multiple forms: It might come from scientific literature, internal reports or patents, stored in systematic or traditional names, various structure formats and images or even identifiers defined in-house.

Our Solution

Chemaxon’s chemical text mining technology offers an automated solution to extract all of the chemical data from various unstructured sources and build an integrated and structured knowledge base from it.

Conversion and Search

Recognition and conversion of chemical identifiers and names (in Chinese or Japanese too) into searchable molecular structures give the backbone of our text mining capabilities. The combination of sophisticated chemical structure search and free text search enable more effective navigation and information retrieval from large-scale document repositories.

Chemical Patents

Patent curation is a specific case of chemical data mining. Computer-assisted extraction, as well as composition, search and overlap analysis of Markush structures support new compound ideas to remain outside the patented space.


Our text mining solution offers a wide choice to work with the content of your documents, patents and articles within your preferred environment. Our technology can be accessed from desktop or web-based applications and also as an integrated piece in your enterprise software infrastructure. Our chemistry add-on for Microsoft Office enables users to edit structures in-place with dynamic calculation of their phys-chem properties. This is not only available in Excel spreadsheets, but also in Word documents and PowerPoint slides as well.
