Search better: tips and tricks for structure and reaction searching in CAS SciFinderⁿ

SciFindern Webinar

 


Every CAS SciFindern user has experienced the challenges of navigating the large variety of substances when performing a structure and reaction search. Join our panel of CAS experts as they share best practices for getting the most relevant results in your answer set when searching for specific compound classes, like polymers, isotopes, and coordination compounds. 

What you will learn

  • How to build structure and reaction queries, including the use of variables, to find related structures and reactions 
  • How to specify an unusual mass (isotope) within your structure 
  • Ways to include stereocenters in your structure and reaction queries
