Cronin group automated validation of chemical synthesis literature published in Science
Cronin group research into the automated validation of chemical synthesis literature has been published in Science. In the paper, entitled “Digitization and validation of a chemical synthesis literature database in the ChemPU”, researchers generated a database of chemical reactions, including the XDL code required to run the reactions on robotic platforms. More than 50 of these entries were downloaded and run successfully on modular chemputers, and an open database was set up for the addition of new reactions. This work showcases a major step towards the digitization of chemistry.
