A guide to searching and using Markush structures

Molecular structure

Chemical patents are often very long and difficult to read. Markush searching can enable you to easily categorise and filter the information you need, giving you the insights that a paper sometimes cannot.

In this guide, you will learn:

  • how to get started with a chemical patent search
  • how to create Markush searches to yield the best results when researching
  • the basics of the language and structure used in patents
  • benefits of patent search to your scientific processes
