Steps for searching chemical information.
1. Decide what type of information is needed. Citation, structure, reaction, property data, etc.
2. Use the appropriate database to search the content.
For example: SciFinder and Reaxys allow structure and reaction searching. The version of Web of Science that SBU subscribes to only allows citation/literature searching.
3. Helpful hint: Locate the CAS registry # for your substance. The CAS registry # is a unique substance identifier. Locate the CAS # using SciFinder or the CRC Handbook of Chemistry and Physics.
