To further improve the newest STNext database, a number of enhancements to CAS FORMULATIONS have been released. These include:
More Indented display formats – In addition to IBIB, the ICHEM, IPRODUCT, ICHPR and IALL display formats are now also available. In these formats, field codes are replaced by their explanation (e.g., instead of IN, INVENTOR).
More values in the FA (Field Availability) field: Component Name (CNM/FA), Formulation Description (FD/FA), Product Name Type Value (PNV/FA), Group Vocabulary (GVO/FA), Component Vocabulary (CVO/FA), Registry Number (RN/FA), Group Function (GFU/FA), and Component Function (CFU/FA). Search CNM/FA to find records which include information in the CNM field.
Search for Registry Numbers in the RN supersearch field. Enter an RN of interest, and the results will be provided for postings in the Group RN (/GRPRN) field, the Component RN (/CMPRN) field and the Solvent RN (/SOLRN) field. (Solvent RNs identify substances that must be added to a formulation to activate it into a product, and are distinct from solvents which may be part of a formulation.)
