The scale of transformation in the business landscape is immense, with an unprecedented pace of change. In the face of substantial disruptions in both business and technology, chemical companies must proactively react and transform. The chemical industry has long been a catalyst for economic growth, fueled by relentless innovation.

In such a competitive industry, staying updated with the latest research, securely retrieving information, and adhering to evolving safety guidelines is essential. And yet, navigating the complexities of Safety Data Sheets (SDS) management, chemical regulations, compliance, and environmental impact studies can be a challenging task. As a heavily regulated industry with constant revisions and updates to guidelines, it's difficult for data scientists and researchers to keep up.

The Future of the Chemical Research

Innovation has always been closely tied to growth; however, the need for innovation within the chemical industry has become more crucial than ever before.

Governments have established ambitious targets and timelines to shift towards sustainability, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and embrace the circular economy. Additionally, the UN's Strategic Development Goals emphasize key areas like climate change, clean water, green energy, and responsible consumption. Simultaneously, chemical customers strive to achieve their own sustainability objectives and pursue growth in related sectors.

This convergence of opportunities presents a defining moment for chemical research, necessitating a diverse range of innovative chemical products that will play a pivotal role in addressing the pressing global challenges we face today.

The question then becomes: How can chemical companies best position themselves to seize this tremendous growth opportunity?

Trusted Partner of Leading Chemical Companies

To prepare for the demands of evolving innovation strategies, chemical companies are proactively investing in research and development, collaborating with partners, and investing in technology to facilitate automated workflows and data.

A vital component of this is managing all aspects of chemical research from data retrieval and analysis to compliance monitoring and allowing teams to focus on innovation, rather than administrative tasks.

Research Solutions is dedicated to providing tailored workflow solutions for chemical teams. Our mission is to enable teams to efficiently search, acquire, and manage scientific articles and content. We take great pride in our track record of assisting esteemed chemical libraries, such as DuPont, Maruzen Petrochemical, Westlake Chemical, and more, in overcoming unique challenges faced by chemical professionals. By leveraging our solutions, these organizations have achieved significant savings of up to 28% on literature acquisition costs. These savings can then be reinvested in further research and development, paving the way for groundbreaking discoveries.

Furthermore, our solutions save critical time throughout R&D processes. They streamline the sourcing of relevant scientific articles, reduce the time spent on literature review, and allow researchers to focus on their core work. 

How Chemical Teams Benefit from Our Ecosystem

Our comprehensive product ecosystem empowers research-intensive organizations with robust enterprise search capabilities and efficient knowledge management in the field of chemical engineering and chemical synthesis.

Here's what sets us apart:

  • Facilitating research on green chemistry, chemical synthesis, and sustainable practices by providing seamless access to relevant research and reports.
  • Ensuring document management that complies with industry standards and government regulations, including safety standards, environmental regulations, and reporting requirements such as REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorization, and Restriction of Chemicals).
  • Offering effective search and retrieval mechanisms that enable users to securely find specific technical information, stay updated on the latest industry findings, and adhere to safety guidelines and regulations related to Chemical Database Management and Safety Data Sheets (SDS).

A Matter of Time: Streamlining Chemical Research

Chemical teams are currently at a turning point, where there is a growing need for swift and transformative innovation and research outcomes. With government regulations and evolving customer demands driving rapid shifts in market needs, it is imperative for the industry to respond with new and viable products and services.

In this dynamic landscape, incremental and narrowly focused approaches to innovation are likely to fall short, leaving chemical companies unable to meet the increasing demand for innovation. This represents a significant missed opportunity for these companies and highlights the urgent need to embrace a more forward-thinking and comprehensive approach to drive future success.

This means efficiency in saving time and expediting research workflows has become increasingly important. Yet, the hours spent on research, navigating through countless scientific articles, ordering papers, and figuring out re-use rights can significantly dampen the pace of progress. 

Through Research Solutions’ advanced tools, chemical teams can expedite the research process without compromising the quality of information. Our cloud-based Article Galaxy platform enables researchers to search and access scientific content all in one place, eliminating the need for disparate tools and databases. The platform's streamlined ordering system enables procurement of articles in under a minute, affording chemical professionals more time for critical analysis and productive application of the information. Moreover, the platform provides clear insights into re-use rights, sparing teams the confusion and time-waste associated with determining the permissible use of sourced articles.
