Reaxys provides access to Beilstein CrossFire, an online chemical encyclopedia, containing all the important information about more than 7 million organic chemical compounds, from 1771 to the present, including reactions and chemical and physical properties (with all corresponding literature references). Reaxys also provides access to the Gmelin database for inorganic chemistry, and the Patent Chemistry database. The University of South Florida has access to the entire Reaxys database.
If you downloaded Beilstein CrossFire to your PC, you can no longer access the Beilstein database through the Crossfire software client. All licenses to Crossfire expired on December 31, 2010 and the servers that were housed at the University of Wisconsin have been retired.

News from Elsevier on Reaxys:
is a brand-new workflow solution for chemists. Offering a wealth of
experimentally validated nformation, Reaxys brings a fresh look
to synthetic chemistry through powerful functionality and relevant
content. Designed by the chemists that brought you the CrossFire
Reaxys reduces the time it takes to get to the relevant results.
Search, analysis and workflow tools are designed around the needs and common tasks of users, including:
The merger of the three prestigious CrossFire databases: CrossFire Beilstein, CrossFire Gmelin and Patent Chemistry Database puts all the relevant data at the user's fingertips. A search across the Reaxys database delivers a single results set and each record provides details excerpted from multiple patent or journal sources.
Reaxys contains an extensive repository of experimentally validated data that chemists need including structures, reactions (including multi-step reactions) and physical properties. Chemists can now get relevant data not found elsewhere - data drawn from source publications carefully selected for their importance and relevance to synthetic chemists.
