SciFinder is widely accepted as the leading research tool for chemists and related scientists, and now SciFinder Mobile is available for research anytime, anywhere. SciFinder's popularity is due not only to its search, retrieval and analysis tools expressly designed by CAS chemists for chemical research, but to the fact that it provides the most direct access to CAS' databases, including the CAS Registry. The world's largest and highest quality collection of information on small molecules, the Registry has been called the "gold standard' for chemical research. Since launching CAS Online in 1980, CAS has been committed to taking advantage of evolving technologies to meet chemists' research needs. CAS pioneered mobile access to substance information six years ago, with the first ever mobile transmission of structure information to the BlackBerry. In 2011, CAS launched SciFinder Mobile, the latest iteration of its mobile technology. SciFinder Mobile is optimized for a range of mobile standards and equipment. It enables scientists to use some of SciFinder's most popular features including researching subject areas, looking up information on chemical substances, and reviewing results of alerts from anywhere. This presentation will detail the operating features of SciFinder Mobile and demonstrate how convenient access to chemical information helps researchers' productivity.
