Chemical Structure searches are generally used for:

  • Patentability evaluations
  • Freedom to Operate evaluations
  • Invalidity or Validity evaluations
  • Getting a summary of the state of the chosen chemical structure

We offer chemical structure searches for all the above purposes. There is an ever-increasing pool of patent as well as non-patent literature related to chemical structures. It is of paramount significance that each resource is checked rigorously by trained professionals.

An in-depth chemical structure search can only be conducted by well-trained researchers. The search requires a unique combination of the elemental knowledge of Markush claims, chemical structures, and the skills to perform smart searching on various chemical structure databases. We, at Citius Minds, have a specialized team that is well-versed with chemical structures and everything related to it. We conduct an exhaustive search using a plethora of specialized tools and databases like STN (REGISTRY, MARPAT AND CAplus), PubChem, Patbase, PatSnap, and Dialog.

Apart from this, all our searches include an in-depth, thorough keyword-based search on several paid and non-paid patent search databases. Alongside keyword-based search, extensive classification-based, assignee/inventor based, and citation-based searches are also conducted to ensure that nothing is missed.
