Prof. Dr. Dhrubo Jyoti Sen, Ishan I. Panchal and Ashish D. Patel
ABSTRACT: SciFinder® is a research discovery application that provides integrated access to the world's most comprehensive and authoritative source of references, substances and reactions in chemistry and related sciences. SciFinder® is a database of chemical and bibliographic information. Originally a client application, a web version was released in 2008. It has a graphics interface and can be searched for chemical structures and reactions. The client version is for chemists in commercial organizations. Versions for both the Windows and Macintosh exist. SciFinder® Scholar is for universities and other academic institutions and lacks some supplementary features for multi-database searching.
SciFinder® offers a one-stop shop experience with flexible search and discovers options based on user input and workflow. You can search for substances, reactions and patent and journal references anytime, anywhere. Make better, more confident decisions knowing that you have access to the largest collection of substances, reactions and patent and journal references produced, compiled and updated daily by CAS scientists around the world. Save time with an array of powerful tools to search, filter, analyze and plan that allow you to quickly find the most relevant answers to your research questions. Don’t worry about missing vital research - if it’s publically disclosed, high quality and from a reliable source, SciFinder® has it! Industry experts rely on SciFinder® as their only source for high-quality content combined with ease-of-use features that help complete their research project from start to finish and now with PatentPak™, a robust, new patent workflow solution which offers instant access to hard-to-find chemistry in full-text patents directly in SciFinder®.
