Chemistry patents typically represent complex chemical structures represented as Markush structures, which are collections of generic chemical structures with a variety of functional or R groups, ring sizes, atoms, etc. This search recognizes chemical compound names in text and recognizes compound structures in drawings embedded in the text, using both the names of compounds and their structure. STN (Scientific Technical Networks), a collection of more than 200 databases, Chemspider, etc, are some of the main tools for structure searching.
A chemical structure search occurs when a chemical structure is used as a search query instead of keywords or text. If the search is carried out properly, a patent researcher (skilled in the chemical field) will “draw” the molecule into one of a variety of search tools. Some common terms in chemical structure searching are:
There are various numbers of tools that are used for chemical structure searching and structure drawing.
It all depends upon the person skilled in the art and how they use the Open source and commercial tools to search for required results. But experience tells us that although the Open source tools are fruitful but they could also be misleading in some sorts and that is why we at Virtue Legal Services also use some commercial tools.
COMMERCIAL TOOLS SUCH AS :
• Derwent World Patents Index
• Chemical Abstracts (CAS)
OPEN-SOURCE TOOLS SUCH AS :
• WIPO Patentscope
CAS Registry Number (CASRN) is used to search chemical structures based on names or synonyms, known chemical properties, chemical families, molecular formulas, or chemical families. In chemistry, biochemistry, and pharmaceutical engineering, variations in functional motifs and chains enable us to create and identify the most relevant references for inventions, thereby boosting your R&D efforts, impacting legal proceedings, keeping track of the competition, and strengthening your IP rights.
Reports of sequence searches contain citations for the sequences in the literature, information about overlap, length of the sequence, organisms, genes, etc.
