Chemical patent searching is as much art as science. It presents unique challenges in knowing how and where to draw the boundaries for a search which is efficient, cost-effective and fit for purpose. The perfect search lies somewhere at the interface between what is required by the client and what is achievable within time limits and cost constraints placed on the searcher. This presentation will review the challenges thrown up by different types of chemical patent searching and discuss how these are resolved through good communication and collaboration between searcher and client.
