SciFinder is a research discovery tool that allows you to explore the CAS databases containing literature from many scientific disciplines including biomedical sciences, chemistry, engineering, materials science, agricultural science, and more. It's a different kind of database in the terms it uses and the ways you can search in it.
One of the major features provided by SciFinder is the ability to draw structures. Watch the video below to review the process of searching this way.

See ways to input a structure into SciFinder to conduct a substance or reaction search. You can draw a structure using the tools in SciFinder’s drawing editor, search a structure that you drew in another drawing application, or automatically draw a structure by starting with a CAS Registry Number or SMILES or InChI string.
To combine saved answer sets:
SciFinder®allows you to create a Keep Me Posted (KMP) profile based on a previously executed search query. You can create a KMP profile for an answer set resulting from:
The profile (and the query it contains) is run weekly, to provide new answers that match the search criteria. If found, new answers are saved as Keep Me Posted Results associated with the profile. You receive an e-mail Notification about the results after each weekly run of the KMP profile. You can view the results after you sign in to SciFinder.
You can create a Keep Me Posted (KMP) profile on any type of explore you have done such as by Research Topic, Author, Company name, etc. or on any type of task performance such as Get References, Get Cited, etc. You can also share your results with your colleagues. On your KMP under a specific title, click on LINK, Copy and paste the URL and share it with others.
