New Resource: SciFinder Scholar

SciFinder Scholar provides access to the largest repository of chemical data from CAS, the Chemical Abstracts Service. It is a favorite among chemists but also popular for research in biology, biomedical sciences, physics, materials science, energy, and environmental science. Researchers can find references, reactions, spectra, regulatory information, chemical/physical properties, and more by simply typing the name of a chemical into the search box. You can draw a structure using the tools in the drawing editor, search a structure that you drew in another drawing application, or automatically draw a structure by starting with a CAS Registry Number or SMILES or InChI string. SciFinder Scholar is the core research and discovery tool for finding journal articles, patent records, chemical substances and reactions.
