Chemical Abstracts Service (CAS), a division of the American Chemical Society, is considered the world's leading source of chemical information. The company's proprietary databases are curated by CAS scientists and recognized by chemical and pharmaceutical companies, universities, government organizations, and patent offices around the world as an important source of chemical information. By combining these databases with advanced search and analysis technologies, CAS databases are said to deliver a current, complete, and cross-linked digital information environment for scientific discovery.
CAS is located in Columbus, Ohio, United States.
In 2007 the Chemical Abstracts Service was designated an ACS National Historic Chemical Landmark in recognition of its significance as the most comprehensive repository of research in chemistry and related sciences.

Famous quotes containing the words service and/or chemical:
“The more the specific feelings of being under obligation range themselves under a supreme principle of human dependence the clearer and more fertile will be the realization of the concept, indispensable to all true culture, of service; from the service of God down to the simple social relationship as between employer and employee.”
—Johan Huizinga (18721945)
“We are close to dead. There are faces and bodies like gorged maggots on the dance floor, on the highway, in the city, in the stadium; they are a host of chemical machines who swallow the product of chemical factories, aspirin, preservatives, stimulant, relaxant, and breathe out their chemical wastes into a polluted air. The sense of a long last night over civilization is back again.”
—Norman Mailer (b. 1923)
