SciFinder MobileCAS offers a mobile version of SciFinder optimized for use with your smartphone browser. (Note: You can't do structure searches and there are no links to full text.) For more information, visit CAS' mobile page. To connect, go to this URL: scifinder.cas.org/mobile or snap this quick response (QR) code with your smartphone's QR reader. Then log in with your existing SciFinder ID and password.
What Is SciFinder?
New Interface ComingCAS is rolling out a redesigned interface for SciFinder in early summer. The functions and available features are largely the same, but the look and feel have been updated and streamlined. Take a slide show tour of the new interface. The new version is not compatible with Internet Explorer 6, so if you happen to still be running that antique browser, now's the time to change.
Experimental Procedures from Synthesis and SYNLETTSciFinder will soon be adding experimental procedure information for chemical reactions reported in the Thieme journals Synthesis and SYNLETT back to 1969.
Ongoing security shortcomings with Java have been causing problems for SciFinder users who try to launch the structure drawing applet. While this has mostly affected Mac users, we have reports of Windows users also encountering issues. CAS is aware of the problem, but since Java changes frequently and is often unstable, CAS is working on a non-Java editor for a summer release. In the meantime, make sure your machine has the latest Java version installed. You should also try a different browser if your preferred one isn't working: every browser is a little different. The Java bug affects only the structure editor; other search options work fine. Another option is to install CAS' stand-alone structure editor and import the saved cxf file into SciFinder for searching. See the System Requirements page for updated information.
