Produced by the American Chemical Society, SciFinder-n is a research discovery tool where you can search the journal and patent literature in chemistry and related sciences. Note: you must register in order to use this resource. See the "more" link below ...
SciFinder-n is the new platform and interface for SciFinder. It’s made up of a number of databases and tools, covering biomedical sciences, chemistry, engineering, materials science, agricultural science, and related sciences. There are 6 CAS databases ...
* CAplus (Scientific Literature and Patents)
* CAS REGISTRY (Chemical Substances)
* CASREACT (Reactions)
* CHEMCATS (Chemical Suppliers)
* CHEMLIST (Regulated chemicals)
* MARPAT (Markush Structures)
… plus MEDLINE.
Sources within the databases include journals, patents, conference proceedings, dissertations, technical reports, and books.
New features in Scifinder-n include:
* MethodsNow Synthesis
* Formulations information
* Retrosynthesis Planner, with predictive capabilities
* a Search History function
* an additional Structure/Reaction Editor.
ALSO NOTE: if you are an off-campus user, you must do your initial registration either: when you are on-campus; or: after you have accessed this page via Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (previously known as Thin Client). This will ensure that your registration sets you up as a CSU user (using CSU's IP range). Then, each time you access SciFinder, you must do so from a link on a CSU web-page (this page or one of CSU Library's lists of databases).
If you already had a valid and current username and password for SciFinder, you can continue to use them for SciFinder-n. You don’t need to re-register.
