Higher system limits increase the power of STN substance-based searching

November  12th,   2010

Substance searchers on STN now have vastly enhanced searching power due to a recent increase in search limits in the CAS databases. The increased limits provide greater flexibility and efficiency in the substance-search processes.

  • The iteration and answer limits for CAS REGISTRY structure searching are increasing from  
    • 2 million to 6 million for online searches
    • 3 million to 8 million for batch searches
