What's New in the Web Version of SciFinder - February 2012
Latest SciFinder Update Implements New Content to Improve the Scientist's Workflow (February 2012)
SciFinder now offers the researcher one-click access to commercial chemical source pricing and availability information. With the ability to access commercial chemical source pricing and availability information, you can now conduct a substance search from initial query to purchasing decision without ever having to open another search tool. Additional sorting and analysis features for pricing and availability make this new information easy to find.
Adding to SciFinder's premier collection of reaction experimental procedures are new procedures from major sources such as Taylor & Francis and German and Japanese patents.
Pricing and Availability Information for Commercially Available Compounds
- During a SciFinder session, researchers can link to pricing and availability information for substances. In addition, commercial chemical sources can be analyzed and sorted by "Pricing & Availability". This enables faster decisions on whether a substance of interest can be purchased within time and budget guidelines.
- The new links to substance pricing and availability complement SciFinder's existing feature for setting supplier preferences, thus enabling researchers to quickly find this information from their preferred supplier sources and make the most of their research time.
Additional Experimental Procedure Information
- Adding to an already substantial collection of experimental procedure information, new data from Taylor & Francis journals, and Japanese and German patents will further assist researchers in determining if a reaction is of interest. From within a reaction answer set, it will be easy to evaluate whether a procedure is of interest based on information such as reaction conditions, catalysts, and nonstandard
- New sources from Taylor & Francis include Synthetic Communications, Journal of Coordination Chemistry, and Phosphorus, Sulfur, and Silicon and The Related Elements covering the period 1998-present.
- Translated English language procedures are now included for Japanese and German language patents from source agencies such as KOKAI, WIPO, and EPO, covering the period 2008-present.
