- Personal structure database
- Personal reaction database
- Personal Lab Note Book
- Small inventory system
- Databases for test results in
Please ask if you are interested
to use such software in small groups.
- Relational database model: You prepare in several batches a
compound and you want to report test data for each batch. All batches
should be linked to the structure. In ISIS/Base you would need to create
all test fields for each batch, ending up with 10 fields for melting
point, if you have 10 batches. In a relational databases model you have
a table for melting points. Isentris Personal Edition uses Microsoft®
SQL Server Express® (free
software) as database.
- All chemical searches are now
the same for the host and for the client system. You have now
similarity search and reaction centers can be mapped. You have even
generic search capabilities, see below!
- Symyx Draw allows you to
create enumerated structures.
- Cherry picking - i. e. you
need to select compounds for purchasing
- The form editor is better
than ever before:
- drag and drop fields from
left into the form area
- you can design several
forms and have them accessed via tabs
- you have all the options
for designing that the .Net programming language provides
- A history tree lets you
recall every search, every query and do logical operations.

Isentris host system you are 100% compatible. If you want to take
your work home you can create on the fly a subset of your host
system, provided you supervisor allows you to do so! Typically you
would download a search in a commercial database for further
refinement, i.e. extract the references for a publication.
For those getting started, videos are available:

A remark about generic structures. Using the
chemical library from Symyx you could store stuctures, like on the left
in a database, and search by susbstructure, and you will find any
substructure that is part of any of the enumerated structures. With
other words, it is not required to store all enumerated structures in a
