SciFinder [electronic resource].
- [Columbus, Ohio : American Chemical Society, Chemical Abstracts Service]
- SciFinder content: References (CAPlus) has more than 50 million records from publications dating back to the early 1800s, with continuous coverage since
- 1907. Cited/citing references cover 1997-present. Updated daily
- Substances (CAS Registry) has 156 million organic and inorganic substances disclosed in literature since the early 1800s. Includes alloys, coordination compounds, minerals, mixtures, polymers and salts; 68 million protein and nucleic acid sequences; and is enriched with experimental and predicted property data and spectra. Updated daily
- Reactions (CASREACT) has ~118 million reactions from 1840 to present including organometallics, total syntheses of natural products and biotransformation reactions. Records are enhanced with yield data, detailed reaction conditions, and experimental procedures. Updated daily
- Chemical suppliers (CHEMCATS) includes millions of unique commercially available products and covers verified catalogs from hundreds of suppliers. Updated weekly
- Chemical regulations (CHEMLIST) covers more than ~394,000 unique chemical substances. Includes information from 150 regulatory inventories and lists. Updated weekly
- Markush representations in patents can embody hundreds of specific substances making it difficult to do a comprehensive search. There are more than 1.2 million searchable Markush representations from >500,000 patents. Continuous coverage since 1988, with selected coverage back to
- 1961. Updated daily
- Biomedical literature (MEDLINE) has more than 27.1 million records. Covers 1946-present. Updated six times each week, with an annual reload.
- SciFinder-n content: All content that is present in SciFinder plus these additional resources: Synthetic methods (MethodsNow Synthesis) has more than 4.5 million step-by-step synthetic protocols
- Specific location of a structure within a patent (PatentPak) connects you to more than 17 million searchable, full-text patents from 46 major patent offices across the globe
- Synthesis planning (retrosynthetic and predictive synthesis) offers a retrosynthetic analysis using reaction data in SciFinder and presents results in an intuitive retrosynthesis plan. Predictive synthesis planning will available soon.
- SciFinder is the most comprehensive database for coverage of chemistry & chemical engineering. It has the world's largest collection of organic and inorganic substance information. The web version of SciFinder provides integrated access to CAPlus, CAS Registry, CASREACT, CHEMLIST, and CHEMCATS which are produced by Chemical Abstracts Service, and to MEDLINE which is produced by the U.S. National Library of Medicine. Sources covered in SciFinder include 10,000 journals, patents from 61 patent authorities, book chapters, conference proceedings, dissertations, evaluated reference works, technical reports, as well as book reviews and biographical information.

- Stanford subscription includes both the old SciFinder and the new Sci-Finder-n/ 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. Only one tab in a browser can be open. SciFinder-n allows scientists to do better research in less time. It accelerates research by providing actionable results such as step-by-step synthetic methods and hard to find chemistry in patents, viewing an interactive citation map of citing and cited literature. Multiple tabs in a browser can be open at one time. One registration system is used for both SciFinder and SciFinder-n. The same registration credentials also work for searching MethodsNow Analytical section which is a separate interface
