SciFinder Scholar is a research tool providing access to Chemical Abstracts databases which index a wide range of international literature in chemistry and diverse scientific fields including biology, engineering, physics, geology and material sciences. Major coverage includes journal articles, patents, dissertations, conference proceedings, as well as over 30 million substance records in the CAS Registry database. SciFinder can be searched by topic, author name, or by substance name, chemical structure, reactions, formulas or CAS Registry numbers. The Substructure Searching Module is now available on SciFinder Scholar. Commercial and regulated chemical information is included in SciFinder database content. Linking to fulltext articles in certain journals to which the library subscribes is an added feature.

Use SciFinder for a quick search of chemical property data. In addition to property data, this search will provide the CAS registry number (CASRN) for the chemical or compound. This CASRN is a useful unique identifier that can also simplify using the other resources in this guide much easier. Note that Bates Faculty and Students are provided access to SciFinder via paid subscription and access requires users to set up an account and login.
Using SciFinder you can quickly search the chemical literature (References) and obtain detailed information about a substance (Substances). It is even possible to search for information about specific chemical reactions by constructing 2D representations of the reactants and/or products (Reactions)!
Chemical Literature Searching Quick Start:
From the "References" category, select the appropriate link to explore the chemical literature by topic, author, journal name, etc.

From the "Reactions" category, select the 'Reaction Structure" link to search chemical reactions in the literature using 2D reactant and product structures. You won't be doing this with Google or Google Scholar!
