56 - CAS Registry: Maintaining the gold standard for chemical substance information

Roger Schenck, John Zabilski Department of Content Planning, Chemical Abstracts Service, Columbus, OHIO, United States

CAS has traditionally built its databases from the journal and patent literature. With the advent of the Internet, CAS now has another major source of chemical substance information. This presentation will discuss these internet resources and how CAS evaluates them for inclusion in CAS REGISTRY, while maintaining its quality standards. Since 1965, the scientific experts at CAS have identified more than 56 million organic and inorganic substances. This presentation will examine the sources of this growth and illustrate what CAS is doing to keep pace with this explosion in small molecule chemistry.
