  • EROS is an indispensable tool for planning optimal syntheses. Published by John Wiley.


    Did you know the EROS database assists with decisions of which reagent, catalyst, solvents and conditions to use to ensure selectivity and high yield in synthesis?

      These decisions require
    • up-to-date comprehensive knowledge of the reagents and catalysts in synthesis
    • How best to use them
    • Their scope and limitations
      EROS contents:
    • 4,000 Reagents and catalysts used in Organic Synthesis
    • …including classical reagents and newer "designer" reagents and catalysts
    • 70,000 reactions
    • …Monographs are written by experts in the field and cover uses, scope, limitations, conditions, selectivity, and yields
      EROS Availability:
    • Structure-searchable
    • On the web
    • Search directly in E-Notebook
      EROS demonstration:
    • Search by reaction type (example: hetero-Diels-Alder)
    • Search by reagent (example: Formation of oxazoles)
    • Search for stereoselectivity (example: Reduction of beta-hydroxyketones)
