benefits of a substructure search
Benefits of a substructure search
  • Retrieves answers included in exact and related structure searches, plus answers with additional substitution
  • Allows substitution at any position where substitution is allowed – all nodes are assumed to be “open” and ring systems are assumed to be “unlocked”
  • Requires the SciFinder Substructure Module (SSM)

Use atom mapping tool for more precise reaction searching

This reaction retrieves over 1300 reactions. In many answers, it is not the amine changing to the nitro – the transformation does not occur in the desired place.

It is better to map the nitrogen so SciFinder knowsthat you desire the same amine to be oxidized to a nitro group. Get88 reactions.

reaction bond marking
Reaction bond marking

Nearly 900 reactionsretrieved, but it is not the chloro being replaced by the oxygen as desired.

It is best to mark the bonds being changed. After designating bonds to be transformed, you get 565 answers – all havechloro being replacedby an oxygen.
