PatentPak - Chemical Abstracts Service

PatentPak is a workflow solution that helps scientists identify important chemistry in within patent documents in a fraction of the time. In February of 2015, PatentPak was introduced for the first time as an add-on to SciFinder®, an industry-leading research discovery application already used by scientists around the world to access the scientific literature. Now with instant access to over 8 million searchable full-text patents from 11 major patent offices around the world, including patents in multiple languages, scientists using PatentPak save up to half the time they typically spend researching patents. At the core of PatentPak functionality is intellectual input from hundreds of scientists who initially index patents for discoverability in SciFinder. Their annotations, visible in the PatentPak interactive patent chemistry viewer, pinpoint the exact location of key substance disclosures within the document and eliminate the need to read or browse the patent page by page. Chemistry that may have once been buried among hundreds of pages is now just one click away. To help scientists interpret the chemistry, PatentPak also provides chemical structures, unique identifiers (CAS Registry Number® identifiers) and links back to SciFinder, where users can take advantage of the unparalleled substance information in CAS REGISTRY, the gold standard for chemical substance information.
