The Importance of Data Estimation for the Beilstein Information System

  • Clemens Jochum
Conference paper


The Beilstein Information System is a structure oriented collection of physical data and reactions which have been extracted from primary literature. The Beilstein Handbook contains more than 1 million compounds described in over 340 volumes. This information is available in printed form for more than 100 years. The Beilstein-Institute is currently setting up a numerical factual databank based on these 340 volumes of the Beilstein Handbook of Organic Chemistry (literature from 1830 to 1960) and 7.5 million factual records of organic compounds (literature from 1960 to 1980).
