(Columbus, Ohio, 11 November 2013) Chemical Abstracts Service (CAS), the world’s authority for chemical information, just registered its 75 millionth small molecule.

In addition to covering substances from journals and patents, CAS REGISTRY includes substances from chemical catalogs, worldwide governmental regulatory agencies and valuable web resources. Since CAS registers substances from chemical catalogs on a daily basis, it should come as no surprise that the 75 millionth molecule was registered from a chemical catalog.
