Connection note

CAS SciFinder-n replaces SciFinder. If you already have a SciFinder account, you may use the same account to access CAS SciFinder-n, and you may also continue to access SciFinder until it retires on June 30, 2022.

New users who have never had a SciFinder account, please create an account by registering with your Rutgers email address. Then, log into CAS SciFinder-n with your account. Newly created accounts cannot access the legacy product SciFinder; they can only access CAS SciFinder-n.

Current faculty and staff, officially registered students, and formally affiliated visiting scholars and researchers are eligible to create accounts.


CAS SciFinder-n is a comprehensive resource for chemical substance and reaction information. It indexes chemistry literature worldwide, including journal articles, patents, conference proceedings, theses and dissertations, technical reports, government documents, and more. It also covers chemical structures, reactions, chemical suppliers, biosequences, and experimental and predictive retrosynthetic analyses for known and novel substances. It also includes features to aid your research, such as relevance scoring, citation mapping, and touchscreen-enabled structure drawing. For help using CAS SciFinder-n, please see the Training Materials. For help registering for CAS SciFinder-n, please see Rutgers' Chemistry Research Guide.
