SciFindern has many new features that will accellerate your research and enable you to do more!



Don’t have access to Full Text Journals but need Reaction Methods? Use MethodsNow!


SciFindern created MethodsNow so you don’t need to get the full text article for the reaction data you’re looking for – we have taken it out from literature where a fully described, step-by-step procedure has been published, along with any characterization data available. This includes when the synthesis was not published in English – we have translated it into English so it is now discoverable. See how MethodsNow works with a video at this link:



Need to find Chemistry and Compounds in Patents? Use PatentPak!


If you are looking for prior art because use wish to write your own patent, then searching through the world’s patent literature is mandatory. But where do you start? What if the patent is in a foreign language? Use PatentPak today to drastically speed up and simplify your patent searching across millions of patents from 46 patent offices. See how PatentPak works with a video at this link:



Want to see every pathway to Synthesizing a Compound? Use the Retrosynthesis Planner!


Sometimes the best way to synthesizing a compound, be it organic, inorganic, natural compound or polymer, is to be able to pick and choose the pathway yourself. Use the Retrosynthesis Planner to do this, whereby you can pick the synthesis route to best fit your lab, your budget, your starting materials and the conditions you prefer. See how the Planner works with a video at this link:



Need to Search for a Compound by Structure? Use the Structure Editor!


Sometimes the only way to search for journal literature is via the structure of a compound, because chemical names and synonym is often missing or incomplete. Thankfully with SciFindern you can do just that – search across more than 50 million journal references and 150 million compounds via the structure of the compound.
