The Publications Division of the American Chemical Society strives to provide its members and the worldwide scientific community a comprehensive collection, in any medium, of high quality information products and services that advance the practice of the chemical and related sciences.
The ACS Symposium Series are the high-quality, peer-reviewed eBooks developed from ACS technical divisions' symposia. Each chapter is carefully authored by an expert in the field, and the collection of chapters edited by an internationally recognized leader in the field. The series covers a broad range of topics including agricultural and food chemistry, cellulose and renewable materials, chemical education, organic chemistry, polymer chemistry, materials, and many others.
CHEMnetBASE : Chemical Databases Online is a collection of chemistry databases, including the Handbook of Chemistry and Physics, the Combined Chemical Dictionary, and other major chemical reference works published by Chapman & Hall/CRC Press.
Bibliographic database that indexes articles from journals on all chemical engineering topics. Source documents include journal articles taken from the forty-nine most important chemical engineering and related journals. Specialist topics include: process control, environmental considerations, mineral processing. Chemistry and chemical reaction information in relation to chemical processes is included. Please note CHERUB is no longer updated and coverage is limited to 1956 - Feb 2012.
Compendex is a comprehensive bibliographic database of engineering research in the broad subject areas of engineering and applied science including: nuclear technology; bioengineering; transportation; chemical and process engineering; light and optical technology; agricultural engineering and food technology; computers and data processing; applied physics; electronics and communications control; civil, mechanical, materials, petroleum, aerospace, and automotive engineering. Compendex combined with the Ei Engineering Index Backfile provides coverage from 1884 to the present day. The database is updated weekly.
ENGINE comprises of a number of engineering branches including mechanical, civil, electrical, geotechnical, chemical, aerospace, biomedical, marine, military, road and rail and is produced by the Institution of Engineers, Australia. It covers 1980 to present.
KEGG (Kyoto Encyclopedia of Genes and Genomes) is a database resource that integrates genomic, chemical, and systemic functional information. In particular, gene catalogs in the completely sequenced genomes are linked to higher-level systemic functions of the cell, the organism, and the ecosystem. The KEGG database and web services are freely available, and the Library has a subscription to the KEGG FTP site.
Reaxys is a web-based search and retrieval system for chemical compounds, bibliographic data and chemical reactions, with chemical data, citations and abstracts as far back as 1823. It is built to support chemists in their daily work with focussed and relevant information in chemistry. Reaxys incorporates three databses, Crossfire Beilstein (organic chemistry), Crossfire Gmelin (inorganic chemistry) and Patent Chemistry, to form a single, fully integrated chemical workflow solution.
SciFinder-n is a research discovery application that provides integrated access to a comprehensive and authoritative source of references, substances and reactions in chemistry and related sciences. SciFinder-n includes: MethodsNow Synthesis which contains more than 5 million fully described synthesis methods and procedures, giving you step-by-step instructions on how to make the compounds important to your research; PatentPak which allows you to search through millions of patents sourced from more than 30 patent offices and instantly locate the chemistry within; Formulations information; Retrosynthesis Planner with predictive capabilities; Additional structure/reaction editor.
SciFinder is a research discovery tool that allows you to explore the CAS databases containing literature from many scientific disciplines including biomedical sciences, chemistry, engineering, materials science, agricultural science, and more.
