CAS STNext® webinar: Comprehensive prior art in chemistry: What you might miss

Date & Time

Time: 16:00 CET (10:00 a.m. EST/4:00 p.m. CET) Length: 60 minutes

Conducting a comprehensive prior art search in chemistry can be challenging. CAS STNext and its included databases enable these searches through unique indexing, classification systems, and content curation.

This session will examine the various methods used to index and abstract the important information within documents to support more comprehensive prior art searches. We will highlight features such as structure indexing, fragmentation indexing, and various proprietary indexing and classification systems. We will also share how these tools can help you search with confidence.
