Working with Search Results

When a search is completed, you can view and filter the results, change the result display, retrieve related data, and keep/remove, combine with saved items, download, email, or save selected results.

Filter Results

You can focus the result set by applying filters. The result set changes dynamically as filters are applied or removed. (See Filter Substances, Filter Reactions, Filter References, or Filter Suppliers for information about the filters specific to each result type.)
