Founded in 1989 and based in Munich (Germany), InfoChem has more than 30 years' experience in the development and integration of sophisticated software tools for the storage and handling of structure and reaction information.

At present, 24 employees and up to 60 freelance abstractors form our team. Of course, the whole InfoChem network of abstractors, and all the people in charge of quality management, and of marketing & sales have a high-level chemistry background. Indeed, most of the software development team also has a chemistry or biology degree in combination with well-established knowledge in the field of chemoinformatics.

After having been part of the scientific publisher Spinger for many years, since 2019 InfoChem is 100% owned by DeepMatter.
