CAS and InfoChem to Collaborate in ChemInformatics

Chemical Abstracts Service (CAS) announced a longterm collaboration with InfoChem, GmbH (InfoChem), a provider of chemical structure and reaction technology as well as datamining in chemical science documents. Under the new collaboration, research teams at CAS and InfoChem will work together to explore the technology frontiers in the field of cheminformatics. For example, the joint team is now researching and developing technology to identify chemical information in text and to semantically enrich chemical information documents. The partners will also continue to focus on chemical substance information and the ways to extract, derive, store, communicate, and interpret that information.  

With the project “ChemProspector,” InfoChem was one of the participants in the prestigious “THESEUS” research program, an initiative of the German Ministry of Economics and Technology. The subject of this project was “Advanced mining and searching of chemical content in patent documents.”

“We are excited to collaborate with the leader in chemical information, CAS,” said Peter Loew, PhD, managing director of InfoChem. “This project will enable InfoChem to enhance our successful research and development from the THESEUS initiative and create significant value for chemists and the chemical enterprise.”
