CAS SciFinderⁿ Case Study

PCC Chemax


This case study of PCC Chemax is based on a July 2021 survey of SciFinderⁿ customers by TechValidate, a 3rd-party research service.

“Regulatory and chemical inventory status helps me to select appropriate chemistries for projects. Enhanced Markush searching helps me to locate substances more easily.”

“It helps me to quickly rule out substances based on inventory status. It also helps me to see possible synthetic routes.”


The types of research challenges CAS SciFinderⁿ helps them solve:

  • Conducting literature reviews for hypothesis generation
  • Finding commercially available chemicals

Use Case

Features and functionalities of CAS SciFinderⁿ that the surveyed company finds particularly useful:
