The American Chemical Society is introducing a new version of its SciFinder Scholar database this summer. Two video previews are available for previewing the new features:
- Introductory video highlighting SciFinder design and key content capabilities.
- Help file tutorial that offers a quick tour of the new design.
Also available is an introductory tutorial in PDF format – http://library.uml.edu/docs/introducing-new-scifinder.pdf
SciFinder Scholar is a comprehensive search and discover platform that offers options for exploring substances, reactions, and patent and journal references:
Substances — includes chemical structures, chemical names, CAS Registry Numbers, properties, commercial availability and regulatory information.
Reactions — an extensive database of current chemical reaction information including reaction schemes, experimental procedures, conditions, yields, solvents, catalysts, as well as commercial availability of substances with direct links to leading producer and supplier sites.
References — current chemistry and related science information from journals, patents, dissertations, and more.
