MARPAT on SciFinder
Users can conduct Markush searches through the SciFinder search interface created by CAS. CAS has discontinued SciFinder Scholar, and SciFinder Web is available for both corporate and academic clients. SciFinder conducts a basic Markush search in MARPAT and automatically crosses the results into CAplus. According to CAS training material for SciFinder:
Markush searches [in SciFinder] are run against the MARPAT database with a predefined set of search parameters that differ in some cases from SciFinder defaults (for example, rings are isolated in Markush searches). Searches are intended to provide focused answers that can be helpful in a preliminary assessment of the patent landscape.
STN is still a more powerful search platform for searching MARPAT than SciFinder, especially for professional patent searchers, since SciFinder automatically sets certain unchangeable parameters in its Markush search that are customizable through an STN search of MARPAT.
