Chemical Abstracts Service (CAS)
CAS finds, collects, and organizes all publicly disclosed information
about chemical substances. It builds and maintains the world’s largest collection of data regarding molecular substances, reactions,
and related content that is vital to the work of researchers. CAS
also manages SciFinder®, an online resource that searches the most
comprehensive collection of chemical substance and reaction information, and provides access to more related references than any
other scientific search service. SciFinder® offers researchers a one-stop shopping experience, with flexible search and discover options
based on users’ input and workflow. You can search for substances,
reactions, and patent and journal references— anytime and anywhere you want.
