Non-Java based Structure Editor Option For SciFinder
October 3, 2013
SciFinder now features a new version of the CAS Structure Editor that does not require the use of a Java plugin. The Java version of the editor is still available for your users, who can now easily select their preferred editor.
The non-Java editor is an easy-to-use option for your users’ research. Be assured the new editor queries the same industry-leading content your researchers have always trusted when using SciFinder; they can have complete confidence in their search accuracy. You may notice some missing functionality in the new editor. While we would ideally release the editor with all functionality, due to the pressing need of some users still experiencing Java-related issues, we felt it important to release the editor as soon as a viable working version was available.
For more information on the plugin-free, Non-Java CAS Structure Editor, visit http://www.cas.org/products/scifinder/system-requirements-web.
Additionally, the latest SciFinder release features the following updates:
- Analyze reaction answer sets by reagent to more quickly identify your synthesis of interest.
- View substance and supplier information simultaneously now that our popular Quick View feature is available from Commercial Sources answer sets. In addition, many top catalog entries now feature direct links to supplier emails from right within SciFinder.
- Update your account information more easily with a new account management link to myCAS® available in Preferences.
- SciPlannerTM how-to guides are now more easily accessible to help you make use of the full power of the features and functionality available within SciPlanner.

UPDATE: November 8, 2013
