SciFinder-n is a completely new discovery tool - not an upgrade of SciFinder Web

SciFinder-n is the newest tool from the Chemical Abstracts Service (a division of the American Chemical Society) created to decrease the amount of time searching for information. Features include: Reactions, substances, and references may be searched simultaneously with advanced relevance ranking algorithms returning the best results. The touch-pad friendly interface optimizes chemical structure drawing with ChemDoodle. Filtering reaction searching wtih Experimental Protocols allows access to MethodsNow Synthesis, a collection of synthetic protocols from major chemical publishers. Citation maps are displayed for documents showing forward and backward citations.
