This article describes our experiences in creating a fully integrated, globally accessible, automated chemical synthesis laboratory. The goal of the project was to establish a fully integrated automated synthesis solution that was initially focused on minimizing the burden of repetitive, routine, rules-based operations that characterize more established chemistry workflows. The architecture was crafted to allow for the expansion of synthetic capabilities while also providing for a flexible… Expand

Context Aware Data-Driven Retrosynthetic Analysis
TLDR
This work introduces a chemical context aware data-driven method built upon millions of available reactions, with attractive run-time characteristics, to recommend synthetic routes matching a precedent-derived template and demonstrates how such tools can bridge chemical synthesis knowledge with synthetic resources and facilitate hypothesis testing thereby reducing the time required to complete an Idea-to-Data drug discovery cycle. Expand
A retrosynthetic analysis algorithm implementation
TLDR
The results indicate that the method, leveraging on reaction transformation rules learned from a large patent reaction dataset, can identify multiple theoretically feasible synthetic routes and, thus, support research chemist everyday efforts. Expand
