Key chemical information is locked within patents and internal documents. In this talk we will overview the chemical text mining provided by the combination of the Linguamatics I2E text mining platform with name-to-structure, substructure and similarity search from ChemAxon. We will describe how this combination of technologies allows us to address some of the most difficult challenges such as extraction of structure activity relationships from tables. To accommodate the fast growing scientific literature from Asia, ChemAxon recently added support for Chinese naming, and we will discuss the advantages of mining in the original language rather than in a machine translation.
