SciFinder is restricted to CSUEB faculty, staff and students. Unlike most of our other electronic resources, there is no walk-in access available for non-CSUEB affiliates on any library computer.
It is available 24/7, with the exception of 7-10pm on Saturdays and 2-10pm on the first Saturday each month.
SciFinder, produced by Chemical Abstracts Service (CAS), is the most comprehensive database for the chemical literature, indexing journal articles and patent records (and other document types), as well as chemical substances and reactions. You can search by topic, author, and substances by name or CAS Registry Number, OR use the editor to draw chemical structures, substructures, or reactions.
It is a core research tool for chemistry, biochemistry, chemical engineering, materials science, nanotechnology, physics, environmental science and other science and engineering disciplines. Depending on your research, it is complementary to other databases like Web of Science and PubMed.
