Databases

SciFinder Scholar
SciFinder Scholar provides access to several Chemical Abstracts Service databases, including Chemical Abstracts, Registry, CASREACT, CHEMLIST, and CHEMCAT. Users may search more than 19 million citations to the chemistry literature by topic, author, CAS Registry Numbers, patent number, and CAS abstract number. More than 22 million chemical substances may be searched by chemical name, chemical structure, CAS Registry Numbers, and formula. Users can also do substructure searching.

ChemBioDraw Ultra
A structure drawing suite to draw accurate, chemically-aware structures for use in database queries, preparation of publication-quality graphics, and entry for modeling and other programs that require an electronic description of molecules and reactions as well as advanced prediction tools and full Web integration using the ChemDraw ActiveX/Plugin. It also provides a drawing tool for biological pathways and includes common pathway elements (membranes, DNA, enzymes, receptors, etc.) as well as the ability to import other elements using the integrated power of ChemDraw's chemical intelligence.

CHEMnetBASE
Includes a wealth of chemical information from chemistry and chemical engineering reference works. Available via the Web, CHEMnetBASE includes information from the Combined Chemical Dictionary, The Handbook ofChemistry & Physics, Polymers: A Property Database, and Properties of Organic Compounds.

Derwent innovations index
The Derwent Innovations Index, available through the ISI Web of Knowledge interface, is a Web-accessible product that merges the Derwent World Patents Index with the Derwent Patents Citation Index. It provides access to more than 14,800,000 patents with links to cited and citing patents, cited articles, and full-text patent data sources. This resource gives users a comprehensive and international overview of inventions in three categories: chemical, electrical and electronic, and engineering. (Learn More)
