Get the best result: refining substance and reaction searches

CAS SciFindern Webinar

Join our experts this month as they share best practices related to creating substance and reaction searches that provide you best results. Whether you want to widen a search with too few results or narrow a search that leaves you with too many, we’ll share practical tips for customizing your search to give you the results you want and then effectively work with your answer set.

 

What you will learn

  • How to use variable nodes in your structure and reaction query to expand the scope of your search
  • How to filter out undesired structure fragments, hazardous reagents, or expensive catalysts 
  • How to find lead compounds for certain pharmacological activities or targets using the bioactivity indicators for substances

Searching the Derwent enhanced polymer indexing system on CAS STNext

Polymers are described in different ways in patents – from structure drawings, to specific polymer names, starting materials, etc. Derwent has created a system for search and retrieval of polymer information in patents. This e-Seminar will discuss the Derwent enhanced polymer indexing system, and will include examples of polymer searches in the Derwent World Patents Index database.
