PRE-1967 CHEMICAL SUBSTANCE ENTRIES ENHANCED WITH PREPARATION ROLE

The CAS preparation role (PREP) has been added to nearly 4 million index entries in CA/CAplus records from 1907-1966. Simplified retrieval of preparations is now possible from the beginning of CA indexing in 1907 to the present.

Additional information on CAS roles is available at:

UPDATED WITH REVISED CAS ROLES

The following specific Process (PROC) roles are no longer assigned in CA/CAplus:

  • Chemical (CPS)
  • Physical (PYP)
  • Engineering (EPR)

Substances with roles in chemical, physical, or engineering processes are now assigned the specific Physical, Engineering, or Chemical Process (PEP) role.

The specific Preparation (PREP) role, Preparation, Unclassified (PNU), is no longer assigned in CA/CAplus. Substances with previously unclassified preparation roles are now assigned one of the following specific PREP roles:

  • Bioindustrial Manufacture (BMF)
