SciFinder is available to University of Iowa students, faculty and staff.

SciFinder is a chemistry database maintained by Chemical Abstracts Service.

You can use it to explore chemistry references by topic, author, company, document identifier, journal, patent or tags.

You can also explore substances by drawing a chemical structure/markush or searching by molecular formula, property, or substance identifier.

You can also use SciFinder to explore reactions by drawing a reaction structure.
