CHEMCATS Chemical Suppliers Program

Be part of the most authoritative, comprehensive and current source for scientists' R&D needs

  • SciFinder provides access to the most authoritative collection of chemistry. CAS is the only organization that can assign and verify CAS Registry Numbers®.
  • Finding information to order chemicals is one of the most frequently used features in SciFinder. Researchers say SciFinder informs 50% of these decisions.
  • A single click gives scientists instant access to commercial suppliers participating in CHEMCATS to purchase the chemicals they need.
  • SciFinder is used by scientists in the top companies and universities around the world.
