As part of the Web of Science Core Collection, which in turn is part of the Web of Science search system, Current Chemical Reactions (CCR) reports over a million synthetic methods from over 100 of the world's leading organic chemistry journals. Each reaction provides complete reaction diagrams, critical conditions, bibliographic data, and author abstracts. The database is text- and substructure-searchable. It serves as both as a reaction database and a current awareness tool. CCR should always be searched simultaneously with Index Chemicus. Note that reaction schematics from CCR and compound structures from Index Chemicus are appended to the same literature record.

Links to the full-text of articles are provided, although electronic access to some items may not be directly available. Please use our Delivery+ document delivery service for any needed article that cannot be retrieved using the links embedded in this database. Current Chemical Reactions can be searched simultaneously with all the other component databases of Web of Science Core Collection or along with the entire Web of Science set of databases for maximum retrieval. However, for a more comprehensive search across all fields of chemistry and materials science including thousands of journals and many other types of documents, searchers should consult SciFinder.
