Perform full retrosynthetic analyses

Being successful in the lab requires a great synthetic plan. Your chemists are juggling many variables, especially when devising routes to novel compounds with no literature-based precedent.

For both known and unknown molecules, CAS SciFinder will perform a full retrosynthetic analysis powered by the renowned CAS collection of reactions, reducing your synthetic planning time. Diverse synthetic routes combine steps from the literature and predicted steps based on rules trained on our full set of reactions.

Synthesis planning in CAS SciFinder
Once your plan is created, you have further control over the scope of the retrosynthesis with scoring profiles.
Experimental procedures in CAS SciFinder reaction search results.
Take step-by-step instructions directly to the lab.

Search and scoring parameters can be customized to fit the specific requirements of the synthesis, and the plan is easily navigated to evaluate alternative routes. Each plan also offers quick access to relevant literature, information on material suppliers, step-by-step methods curated by experts, product yields, and more.

Looking to optimize your internal synthesis planning models? Learn how high-quality reaction data from CAS can help.
