  • Abstract:

Reaxys Predictive Retrosynthesis is a best-in-class innovation in retrosynthesis for medicinal and synthetic chemistry. Getting from a desired novel molecule to an optimal synthesis route used to take considerable time, effort, and expertise; thus we applied AI and machine learning to high-quality Reaxys data.
