Using smartphone technology, researchers can now access Chemical Abstracts Service’s SciFinder. With no need to download a special app, the new mobile platform is available to all SciFinder subscribers and allows researchers to use web-enabled smartphones to access Chemical Abstracts Service (CAS) databases. SciFinder Mobile is not restricted by IP address and provides unlimited access to SciFinder features, enabling users to look up a chemical substance, find or confirm a property for a substance, and review publications and references for an author or inventor. It is compatible with a wide range of smartphone operating systems, including Apple iOS, Google Android OS, Nokia Maemo and Symbian OS, and RIM BlackBerry OS.
