Staff at FSS now have unlimited access to SciFinder (Chemical Abstracts Service) on the web. This means we can perform an unlimited number of searches as well as concurrent searches (ie more than one person can be logged on at any one time). Individual logins are still required however.
SciFinder is a research discovery application that provides unlimited access to the world’s most comprehensive and authoritative source of references, substances and reactions in chemistry and related sciences.
It includes a broad spectrum of technical and scientific information based on the CAplus, CASREACT, and Registry databases from the Chemical Abstracts Service. It indexes journals, books, conferences, patents, dissertations – in chemistry, biochemistry, physical, inorganic, analytical chemistry, applied chemistry, chemical engineering, macromolecular chemistry and organic chemistry. And it is updated daily.
SciFinder allows you to search by keyword or topic as well as by molecular formula, substance identifier eg CAS Registry Number, and chemical or reaction structure.
Training or product demonstrations are available.
