Chemical Abstracts Plus (CAplusSM) is the most current and comprehensive bibliographic database of chemical information available from Chemical Abstracts Service (CAS). CAplus is directly linked to its companion file CAS REGISTRYSM which is the broadest collection of chemical substance information worldwide. The CAS databases CAplus and CAS REGISTRY offer intellectually analyzed content obtained from journal and patent literature.

Content and coverage of CAplus
CAplus covers patent and journal article references from all areas of chemistry, biomedical sciences, engineering, materials science and agricultural science.
Coverage goes back to 1907. The file is updated daily and now contains

  • more than 12.3 million documents from patent publications of 63 patent-issuing authorities
  • more than 45.5 million documents from thousands of journals worldwide, technical disclosures, books, conference proceedings, dissertations, reviews, etc.
