SciFinder-n Enhancements November 2023

Enhanced “All” search results page

When you conduct a query using the “All” search option, the page displaying the results has a new appearance. The display on this page is now streamlined to minimize the need for scrolling and improves your ability to scan and interact with results quickly.

Additional enhancements:

  • GHS Hazard data refinement — This data is now filtered to display only the most significant and authoritative records.
  • Retrosynthesis Stereochemistry update — Rules for stereochemical reactions have been updated to ensure the creation of the most relevant plans, making it a more powerful tool for you.
  • Sequence results improvements — Updates include improved rendering time, the ability to select individual sequences, and an option to cross over to references for Selected Results.
