Enhancements to SciFinder from chemical abstracts service.

Chemical Abstracts Service (CAS), a division of the American Chemical Society, introduced a series of enhancements to its SciFinder research service that will provide more research pathways for professionals in the chemical, pharmaceutical, and biotechnology industries. Added to the service's web interface in early April, the features include improvements and additional functionality such as more precise reaction searches, cross-compatibility for structures created in ChemDraw, the ability to prioritize information sources and chemical suppliers, and combined answer sets.

SciFinder is a web-based research service developed by CAS that provides intuitive pathways within research content, with a specific focus on chemical indexing and curation. Optimization is performed by acknowledged experts in the field, giving users access to more relevant articles and patent information. The service is in use at more than 1,700 universities.
