US CAS and INPI collaborate to enhance patent application examination efficiency with new AI approach - 08 Jan 2019

The National Institute of Industrial Property (INPI) of Brazil and CAS, a division of the American Chemical Society that specialises in scientific information solutions, have initiated a collaboration to speed the processing of patent applications at INPI by improving the efficiency of the patent examination process.

CAS will apply data from its human-curated content collection in a new artificial intelligence (AI) solution. The technology combines scoring similarity, workflow classification and knowledge-space exploration capabilities to uncover a reliable set of prior art, or previously published information relevant to the subject innovation, which expedites patent examiners' work.

As the new process is deployed, the INPI team will be able to significantly improve application pendency; however, this technology is likely to have broader implications. At a meeting in Brazil, Manuel Guzman, CAS President, commented that he believes the new technology can make a difference for patent pendency worldwide.

AI techniques, including graph database neighbours and other similarity and machine learning techniques are used to present examiners with a set of relevant publications to inform their evaluation of the application novelty and inventive step considerations.

German Thieme Chemistry deposits about 700,000 distinct chemical structures to PubChem - 08 Jan 2019

Thieme Chemistry, a part of the Thieme Group, has provided approximately 700,000 distinct structures to PubChem, the open chemistry database at the National Institutes of Health (NIH). In addition to the structural information, the upload includes more than 1,200,000 distinct links from chemicals to the Thieme Chemistry journals and online product portfolio, enlarging the number of chemical structures in PubChem with links to the scientific literature.

PubChem is an open database of chemical molecules at the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH) and is used by several million users worldwide. It collects information on chemical structures, identifiers, biological activities, chemical and physical properties as well as patents, health, safety and toxicity data. Since the launch in 2004, PubChem has become a key chemical information resource for scientists, students, and the general public. Now thousands of structures and links to Thieme's chemistry journals SYNTHESIS, SYNLETT, SYNFACTS, as well as to the online reference works Science of Synthesis and Pharmaceutical Substances have been uploaded to the PubChem portal. Of the 700,000 Thieme Chemistry chemical structures deposited to PubChem, 89 percent did not have literature links prior to this contribution. In addition, 42 percent of the 700,000 chemical structures are new to PubChem.

With its scientific publications, Thieme Chemistry provides chemists in research, science and industry with highly evaluated specialist information on synthetic, organic and general chemistry. All products of Thieme are available in electronic format and predominantly in English language. Full access to current awareness articles from SYNFACTS, primary literature journal articles from SYNTHESIS and SYNLETT, full-text synthetic methodology reviews in Science of Synthesis and encyclopedic information from Pharmaceutical Substances is subject to journal subscription or licensing.

US Prof. Tianquan (Tim) Lian named Editor-in-Chief of The Journal of Chemical Physics - 08 Jan 2019

AIP Publishing, a not-for-profit scholarly publisher in the physical sciences, has announced the appointment of Tianquan (Tim) Lian, the William Henry Emerson Professor of Chemistry at Emory University, as the Editor-in-Chief of The Journal of Chemical Physics (JCP), a peer-reviewed journal publishing innovative and quantitative science of long-lasting value in chemical physics and physical chemistry.

Prof. Lian joined the Emory University faculty in 2002 and was previously the Winship Distinguished Research Professor of Chemistry. He was Co-Editor of the journal Chemical Physics from 2012 to 2018, and has been a member of the Editorial Advisory Boards of Journal of Physical Chemistry (A, B, C and Letters), Chemical Physics Letters and Spectrochimica Acta A.

Prof. Lian's current research interests are focused on physical chemistry/chemical physics problems that are essential to energy conversion and storage. His lab develops and applies modern spectroscopic techniques to directly probe structures and dynamics. Their work has contributed to the fundamental understanding of interfacial charge transfer between the absorbed molecular substances and semiconductor nanoparticles and electrodes. He and his colleagues have identified key factors that limit the efficiency of nanocrystal-based systems for solar to H2 conversion and provided important insights for their improvement.

The Journal of Chemical Physics was founded by Nobel Laureate Harold C. Urey in 1933 to address the unmet need of scientists working at the boundary of chemistry and physics. The journal has played an essential role in leading and expanding the discipline of chemical physics and physical chemistry in the past 85 years. As Prof. Lian takes the reigns, he pledged to focus on expanding the journal's coverage of growing areas to serve the full spectrum of physical chemistry and chemical physics. Topics for expansion identified thus far include catalysis (including electro-, photo-, and photoelectro-), plasmonics and nanophotonics, optical electronics, energy conversion and storage, interfacial structures and dynamics, and chemical physics of nanomaterials. Other priorities include improving the timeliness of reviews and engaging early career researchers, with the formation of an Early Career Editorial Advisory Board, as well as a call for submissions to an Emerging Investigators Special Collection.

JCP is part of AIP Publishing's portfolio which includes Applied Physics Letters, Journal of Applied Physics, AIP Conference Proceedings, and other community focused peer-reviewed journals, its flagship magazine Physics Today, and Scilight, a weekly publication highlighting the most interesting new research in the physical sciences. AIP Publishing partners with 10 scholarly societies, providing the full suite of publishing services, from manuscript submission to online hosting.
