Chemical Abstracts Service to Provide Private Demonstrations of SciFinder Mobile and SciPlanner™ During ACS Spring National Meeting

What

Chemical Abstracts Services (CAS) will be on-site at the 241st ACS National Meeting & Exposition to provide previews of two groundbreaking enhancements to its award-winning SciFinder research platform:

SciFinder Mobile: The industry’s first mobile interface to provide anytime access to information on chemical substances, reactions, research and patent literature, and research alerts. SciFinder Mobile will launch on April 4.

SciPlanner: An industry-leading interactive workspace that enables synthetic chemists to plan their work and organize search results, saving time and effort before heading into the lab. SciPlanner will be introduced in SciFinder on April 18.

SciFinder provides chemists and other researchers with access to millions of peer-reviewed research articles, patents, dissertations, and other research literature, as well as the most comprehensive, timely information on chemical substances, reactions, properties, and experimental procedures. SciFinder Mobile and SciPlanner will advance SciFinder’s position as the industry’s premier tool for scientific research and will help SciFinder users work faster, efficiently, and more effectively from anywhere in the world, saving time and money during the R&D process.

Members of the media are invited to visit the CAS booth for a demonstration of SciFinder Mobile and SciPlanner from Christine McCue, Vice President of Marketing for CAS. McCue will discuss how CAS’ expertly indexed databases give researchers confidence in the quality of their work and how SciFinder brings speed and accuracy to research.
