Product Header and Tab Names

Result set pages, detail, pages and their associated tabs now have more descriptive names to provide some additional context while in the product and help with navigation if the user has multiple tabs open. This also contributes greatly to WCAG compliance.

Here are some examples:







Model Entire Reaction to Structure Editor

Upon viewing a reaction result, set a new drop-down menu will be present in the upper right-hand corner of the result.


Opening the drop-down menu will provide an option to send the reaction to the structure editor.


Clicking Send to Structure Editor will open the default structure editor and populate the canvas with the reactant(s) and product(s) of the reaction with associated roles and reaction arrow. If the reaction is a ‘Product Only’ reaction, only the product will be modelled to the editor.

Transfer Results from STNext to SciFindern

While in REGISTRY, CAplus, or MEDLINE files in STNext, options to send results to SFn are available on the History tab.


Selecting either option opens a dialog in which the user can choose the results to transfer. The limit is 10,000 substances or references.


Clicking the Continue button provides a wait state while the results are being prepared for export.

When the results have been prepared for export, an Open SciFindern or Open Email button is provided.

Clicking the Open SciFindern button closes the dialog and opens SciFindern in a new tab.


Clicking the Open Email button closes the dialog and opens a draft email in accordance with the user’s mailto: protocol.



Sending either CAplus or MEDLINE references to SciFindern provides the combined reference in SciFindern if appropriate.

Sort Reactions by Publication Date

Reaction result sets with two or more reactions present can now be sorted by the Publication Date, ascending and descending, of the containing reference.


In Group by Scheme view, the reaction schemes are sorted by the newest or oldest publication date of any reaction contained in a scheme depending upon the sort order chosen and the reactions within the scheme will then be sorted by the newest or oldest publication date.

In Group by Document view, the reactions are sorted by the publication date of the document. The most relevant reaction from the document within the current result set will continue to be displayed.

Active Result Set Combine

A new option to combine an active answer set is now available on the toolbar. This option saves users' time by eliminating the need to first save a result set prior to combining it.


Upon clicking the Combine icon _SFn-CombineResultsIcon.png, a popup window opens; if the result set has selected results, the count of selected results displays in the window and the selected answers will be combined with the saved result set(s).


If there are no selected results, all results or the query, if present, will be combined with the saved result set(s).


If the Add or Intersect options are selected, the combine function works in accordance with the combine function from the Your Saved Items page with the exception of only being able to select 4 saved answer sets to combine with rather than 5.

If the Subtract option is selected, only one saved answer set can be selected, and the option to select which result set is subtracted from which is shown below the list of saved results.


Filter Substances by Element

If a substance result set contains one or more substances with a molecular formula, an Element filter is now available. Since D and T are contained in molecular formulas, D and T have filter options which are separate from the H option. All other isotopes are contained in the associated element bin.


The Element filter functions in accordance with all other filters with selectable options in both Filter by and Exclude modes.
