SciFinder Web (classic version)

Log-in to SciFinder Web

SciFinder Web is the classic version of the SciFinder interface and may eventually be retired by CAS.  SciFinder-n is the latest version of the interface.

SciFinder Web is a research discovery tool that allows college students and faculty to access a wide diversity of research from many scientific disciplines, including biomedical sciences, chemistry, engineering, material science, agricultural science, and more! Created by CAS (a division of the American Chemical Society), it serves as an electronic version of Chemical Abstracts providing references from more than 9,500 journals and patents from over 50 patent-issuing organizations. It also contains the world's largest collection of organic and inorganic substance information. View a website with Tutorials, Training, and How to Guides for SciFinder Web.
