Bewerben ist wie flirten: Wer zu langweilig und 08/15 ist oder den falschen Ton trifft, wird abgewiesen. Zwei Vorgehensweisen können nun angewandt werden: die quantitative oder die qualitative Strategie. Die quantitative Strategie bedeutet: mehr schlechte Bewerbungen schreiben. Sprich: einfach mehr flirten in der Hoffnung, dass auch ein blindes Huhn…usw. Die qualitative Strategie verspricht, durch kluge Bewerbungen mehr Erfolg zu haben. Das bedeutet beim Bewerben wie beim Flirten: mehr Auswahl. Um letztere Strategie dreht sich das Seminar.

Nach dem Seminar werden die Teilnehmer:

  • Sich gezielter und Präziser ausdrücken können.

9) Synthesis - Retrosynthesis - Analytical Methods - Patents in research

 

Date: 03/23/2022; 4:30 PM - 6:30 PM

Location: Building 2504 - Room 007 (Callinstraße 3a, 30167 Hannover)

Organizer: CAS

Language: English

Additional information for participants: Please bring a Laptop with you if possible

 

Description:

In this course you will learn how to use SciFindern in the most efficient way for your synthetic and analytical research. We are going to discuss the different options to control your structure searches for substances, as well as for reactions to remove noise in the most effective way. Map visualizations of structure search results offer a fresh new viewpoint on your research, e.g. are great for poster presentations. SciFindern further offers an automated way to create retrosynthesis plans, either based on published literature, or predictively. We will also discuss different ways to find analytical data and review analytical methods.  

In the second part, we discuss new functionalities of SciFindern to explore the information contained in and associated with patents. For example, SciFindern enables the efficient comparison of synthesis steps published in patents with those in scientific journals and to intuitively use citations as stepping stones to find and analyze associated technologies. A recently implemented AI-based prior art search technology enables users to automatically retrieve the closest published patent and non-patent literature.  

This class will allow newbies to quick-start searching with SciFindern while seasoned users will learn how to enhance their search efficiency.
