SciFinder - Reaction Searching
Input Structures Using the Drawing Editor
See ways to input a structure into SciFinder to conduct a substance or reaction search.  You can draw a structure using the tools in SciFinder’s drawing editor, search a structure that you drew in another drawing application, or automatically draw a structure by starting with a CAS Registry Number or SMILES or InChI string.


Search for Chemical Compounds Using a Structure Search
See how to search for chemical compounds using a structure search in SciFinder.  Learn how to access physical, chemical and biological property information. Find references associated with the substance, related reactions, information about its commercial availability and regulatory information, when available.


Find Property Data, Regulatory Information, Commercial Availability, Bioactivity and Synthesis Information
Learn how to find specific information about a substance, such as spectral and property data, regulatory restrictions, and bioactivity and target indicators.  See how to check for commercial availability and find experimental procedures for synthesizing the compound.
