Yes, Neo4j provides a built-in function "shortestPath()" to find the shortest path between two nodes in a graph. You can use this function in your Cypher queries to retrieve the shortest path.
Here's an example of how to use the shortestPath() function in a Cypher query:
MATCH path = ShortestPath((c1:Compound)-[*]-(c2:Compound))
WHERE c1.node_id = 'PUBCHEM_CID 2381' AND c2.node_id = 'PUBCHEM_CID 5281081'
