Examples of specific data found in the sections include top genes, mutations, significance, phenotypes, clinical trials, [Chemical Abstracts Service] CAS registry number, and PubChem Id.
Under the Reference Section, there are areas to conduct an advanced search by narrowing the choices according to a number of categories (author, CAS registry number, Journal, Database, Language, Dates, etcetera).
Since some sample history was available to the researchers, they gathered all the literature references and refined those patent and journal articles to only those containing the phrase "can coating." Four references revealed cyclo-DiBADGE (cyclo-di-bisphenol A diglycidyl ether, CAS Registry Number 20583-873) as a possible candidate that was consistent with all the data.
The 50 millionth substance (CAS Registry Number 1181081-51-5) was uncovered by CAS scientists from the Examples section of a nearly 200-page patent issued by the World Intellectual Property Organization on August 13, 2009.
Data can be queried by chemical name, CAS Registry number, organic chemical class, or species name (scientific and common) from laboratory and field data in either fresh or saltwater.
While we didn't find a simple way to limit the search to the word benzene by itself, the search could be done using the CAS registry number instead of the name.
CAS registry number, Merck index number, an illustration of the chemical structure, chemical and dye class, molecular formula and weight, color change at pH, pKa, physical form, solubility, melting point, UV-visibility, synthesis, major applications and safety/toxicity data.
Every substance is given a permanent, unambiguous, and unique identifying number, the CAS Registry Number Scientists and researchers around the world rely upon the CAS Registry Number as the globally accepted standard for defining and describing a chemical substance.
Both retrieve information relatively quickly and can search using a name fragment, synonym, or CAS registry number. One thing not included in POC is the ability to print out the synonyms for the compounds, i.e., a search for aspirin or ASA provides the same compound (benzoic acid, 2-acetoxy-) but does not provide a list of synonyms.
