  • Registry Numbers
    Registry Numbers RNs are very useful when searching for information about a specific chemical structure as well as polymers mixtures alloys and substances whose exact formula is unknown or variable CAS has also registered tens of millions of biosequences A Registry Number RN looks like this 123456 78 9 where the first segment can be from two to seven digits long followed by two digits then a single check digit It is a sequential accession number from the CAS Registry database The RN carries no chemical or structural meaning in itself It is simply an identifier for a specific substance that CAS has registered during the process of indexing the literature or added from another source The shorter the first segment the older the registration and the more common and probably better described the compound is Where to Find Registry Numbers Many printed and online reference sources about chemicals use CAS Registry Numbers as a standard identifier See Caveats below SciFinder Sigma Aldrich Catalog or virtually any chemical supplier s catalog NIST Chemistry WebBook Combined Chemical Dictionary Common Chemistry CAS CRC Handbook of Chemistry and Physics Organic and Inorganic compound tables Merck Index Handbook Table Chemical Names and Structures Using Registry Numbers as Search Terms A Registry Number allows you to avoid using chemical names when searching for information about a compound If you have a RN in hand use it as a search term in SciFinder in place of a chemical name Most non bibliographic chemical databases also allow searching by Registry Number Caveats Registry numbers are useful substitutes for names but they are not perfect CAS registration policies are complex and highly specific This is especially true for substances with undefined structures commercial formulations polymers mixtures inorganic substances separate RNs are assigned for ions charge states hydration states
