SciFinderⁿ is a scientific information search tool provided by CAS. It provides a comprehensive search of chemistry-related information, including articles, patents, chemical substances and their regulatory information and reagent catalogue information from all over the world.
*SciFinder was transferred to SciFinderⁿ on 1 April 2022. Training courses will also be held on SciFinderⁿ.

Lecturer from JAICI, which provides this database, will be invited to hold online training sessions via Zoom. The workshop is divided into two courses: a basic course to introduce SciFinderⁿ search methods in a compact manner, and a technique course to learn more practical search techniques. It is possible to attend only one of the courses, so even if you cannot attend all of the courses due to time constraints, please feel free to register.

Only for Tokyo Tech members. No maximum number of places available.

The only language used in the workshops is Japanese.
