CAS collaborated with SciFinder customers to develop a set of Need-to-Know Videos that cover practical, real-world applications of SciFinder features and capabilities. Averaging only three minutes, these videos will quickly give you the information you need for using SciFinder effectively and advancing your research.
SciFinder Training: Search for Specific Reactions or Reaction Type
See how you can use SciFinder to find information about a specific chemical reaction or reaction type. Learn how to access associated reaction information, such as catalysts, solvents, yields, and experimental procedures.
Use SciPlanner to Plan a Synthesis Project
See how to use SciFinder to plan a synthesis project, beginning with a substance identifier search. Learn how to identify the most relevant reactions for synthesizing the compound, use SciPlanner to design synthetic pathways and retrieve references associated with the reactions in the pathway.
Comparison of Reaction Search Types: Specify Variability vs Substructure
Compare the results of the two kinds of reaction searches: Variable only at the specified positions and Substructures of more complex structures.
Understand Reaction Details
The reaction details for an answer are full of useful information. Learn what is included in the details and how you can use this information to your advantage when searching SciFinder.
Group Reactions by Transformation or Document
This video will show you how to quickly assess the reactions in your answer set by grouping them by transformation or by document.
