CHEM 532: Organic Chemistry


Accessing SciFinder

SciFinder is available via the Internet.  It is for use by current Wichita State University students, faculty, and staff only.  Before you can use, you will need to create a username and password using the registration form found at

You will then use this username and password to access the web version of SciFinder.  The first time you register, you MUST be on a computer located on the WSU campus, such as one at the libraries.  Once you have completed the registration and obtained your own username and password, you can access SciFinder from anywhere, including off campus.  However, you must access SciFinder through the WSU libraries webpage and you will have to log-in with your WSU ID and password.


Need help using SciFinder?

SciFinder is a very powerful database with a number of different features you can use, including general reference searching, structure searching, and reaction searching.  You can find research articles, patents, chemical information, and more. If you are unsure of how to do anything, SciFinder has developed a number of helpful handouts and tutorials.  Find them here: SciFinder Training Tools.
