Sample Searches

Below are sample searches that illustrate methods you can use. Chemical Abstracts produces two versions of its user-friendly client interface for searching CAS Online: SciFinder Scholar (SFS) for academic users, and SciFinder (SF) for commercial users. While there are some differences between SFS and SF, they share many features. Because search examples for SFS and SF complement one another, I have included examples from both SFS and SF below.
