CHEM 5560: Inorganic Chemistry: Scifinder-n

This guide directs you to library resources to use while researching and writing your term paper in CHEM 5560.

Scifinder-n: The Updated Scifinder Scholar

Scifinder-n is the top database in chemistry for finding literature and substances. It includes the content from Scifinder Scholar - literature, substances, reactions, and suppliers - and new sections - MethodsNow Synthesis, Retrosynthesis Planner, and PatentPak. Give it a try to see how much chemical information you can locate in one place. Both Scifinder-n and Scifinder Scholar will be available through December 31, 2020; after that, Scfinder Scholar will be discontinued.

Already have a Scifinder Scholar account? Then you're ready to login to your Scifinder-n account. Simply follow the instructions in the box below.

Never used a Scifinder database? Then you'll need to register for an account first. Please follow the instructions in the box below.
