Advanced Chemistry Development, Inc. and Reel Two, Inc. have partnered to apply ACD/Labs’ nomenclature software to the challenging task of converting chemical names found in full text patents to chemical structures.

SureChem can provide web-based structure and keyword searches of a database of more than 16 million compounds extracted from the full text of patents worldwide.

SureChem Enterprise, installed at the client’s site can enable users to apply SureChem to their own documents and text data sources. Reel Two has incorporated ACD/Name to Structure into its SureChem patent chemistry portal and will be offering it as an option for clients licensing the on-site SureChem Enterprise product.

“Reel Two is using ACD/Name to Structure Batch to ensure the most comprehensive indexing possible,” said Nicko Goncharoff, Senior Vice President at Reel Two. “ACD/Name to Structure consistently delivers unambiguous structures for compounds that are often difficult to convert,” he added.

“Working with the team at SureChem has provided us with the opportunity to exercise our Name to Structure conversion algorithms on a very large data collection.” comment Antony Williams, Vice President and Chief Science Officer at ACD/Labs.

“This interaction has enabled us to further optimize some of the name-to-structure algorithms to provide direct benefit to all of our users. We look forward to an ongoing mutually beneficial relationship, especially with our primary intention of delivering the highest quality conversion software in the industry.”
