About the workshop

SciFinder is the most important source of information in chemistry and chemistry related topics. It provides an index to journal articles, patents and chemical data. The following types of searches will be included: chemical name, CAS registry number, molecular formula, topic, author, structure, substructure and reactions. The first half of the session will focus on topic searching and finding property information. The second half of the session will focus on structure and substructure searching. Participants who will not need to use structure searching in their research are welcome to attend for the first hour only.

Learning outcomes

After attending this workshop, you will be able to make effective use of the SciFinder database to locate chemical information and data.

Target audience
