What's New with SciFinder

June 2024

The most recent CAS SciFinder® release includes the following enhancements. These improvements combine user behaviour analysis and your feedback to streamline workflows and improve your experience.

Expanded workflows for Projects

CAS SciFinder now gives you the ability to download a Project for both references and substances. This will help you more effectively manage tasks such as generating a list of references to create citations, using findings to create a report, and sharing information with colleagues.

In addition, a new icon found on each reference in your search results makes it easy to add that specific reference to a Project.

Experimental Properties downloads

Substance detail downloads have been updated to include expanded experimental properties, making more information available to you when you perform a download.
