Coming to MU in November–Access to SciFinder-n

Starting November 1, 2020 MU researchers will have access to SciFinder-n.  SciFinder-n is a new generation of SciFinder with better functionality via mobile devices.  It includes several new tools– PatentPak, MethodsNow Synthesis and Retrosynthesis Plan. Go to the CAS website to see additional information about SciFinder-n.

Your current SciFinder ID and password will also work for SciFinder-n, however, you will need to use a different URL to access this new version. The URL for accessing SciFinder-n will be provided closer to November 1st. You can continue to use Scifinder for a while, but CAS does plan to discontinue the old platform in 2021.
