The Crossfire service, which gives access to the Beilstein and Gmelin databases, will cease at the end of December.
If you are still using CrossFire you will need to switch to the new web-based service, Reaxys. This new resource includes Beilstein and Gmelin, as well as the Patent Chemistry Database. At present you can only access Reaxys on-campus or off-campus via the VPN. Full off-campus access is being developed by the suppliers.
For more information, including links to help on how to use it, go to our Reaxys page.
