PatentPak in SciFinder

What is PatentPak®?

PatentPak is a robust patent workflow solution available in SciFinder®. Designed to radically reduce time spent acquiring and searching through multiple patents to find vital chemistry, PatentPak saves users up to half the time they spend researching patents by providing instant access to hard-to-find chemistry in patents and patent families in languages users know.

The only patent workflow solution of its kind!

Only PatentPak offers all of the following:

  • Instant access to searchable full-text patents from major patent offices around the world
  • Patent family coverage in multiple languages
  • Substance location mapping
  • Secure and confidential patent research
  • Daily updates
  • Interactive patent chemistry viewer with built-in SciFinder search functionality

All without leaving your current SciFinder session!​​

How does it work? 

Once you have located a patent of interest, use the PatentPak option to immediately view available full-text documents, often available in a variety of source languages depending on the patent family.

CAS analysts have annotated the important chemistry in many patents available in PatentPak. You can view the annotated patent  in our unique interactive patent chemistry viewer to quickly pinpoint the locations in the document that you need to see.
