Polymers in SciFinder

There are many unique rules and special tips for where and how to find information on polymers in the SciFinder Chemical Abstracts database.

Key Tip

Results can often include small molecules in addition to polymers. Small molecules can be removed from large answer sets by refining results with a specific property type:

  • Small molecules have Predicted Molecular Weight values while polymers do not.
  • Input “0 to 1” molecular weight range to filter out substances with predicted MW (non-polymers).
  • Selecting the button “Include substances with no value for the specified properties” will include any additional polymers.
