Is there a program or online service to automatically check if there is a retracted paper in the bibliography of a pdf file?

I'm not sure a tool for this exists at the moment, but the open database of retracted papers from Retraction Watch is a great place to search for retracted papers--AFAIK it's the major database of retractions anywhere, and it's free to use.

If anyone is interested in developing tools for interfacing with the database, I bet they would be amenable (I am not affiliated with Retraction Watch, just appreciate the work they do).

As of today, nothing for free, and definitely nothing for PDF files. The best approach to developing such a program would be writing a front-end to the database of an organization such as Thomson Reuters or DBLP. However, you are unlikely to get free access to the interface of the database.
