Chemical Abstracts Service

"The mission of CAS is to be the world's leading provider of chemical information."
— Robert J. Massie, President, CAS, quoted in Ross, Linda Romaine, "CAS Aims to Keep Customers by Improved Service, Pricing, Management," Chemical & Engineering News 72 (October 31, 1994): 20.

The Chemical Abstracts Service, a division of the American Chemical Society, provides the most comprehensive repository of research in chemistry and related sciences. The CAS databases contain invaluable information for chemists, including the largest collection of substance information, the CAS RegistrySM. CAS offers this information to researchers through innovative search tools such as SciFinder® and STN®.

The American Chemical Society designated the Chemical Abstracts Service a National Historic Chemical Landmark on June 14, 2007.
