Key Chemistry Databases

  • SciFinder
    SciFinder requires registration. SciFinder is the core research and discovery tool for finding chemical substances, reactions, journal articles, and patent records. Covers journals, conference proceedings, patents, dissertations, and books from 1907 to the present. Draw and submit chemical compound and reaction searches directly from ChemDraw into SciFinder. Tutorial
  • Reaxys
    Search the Beilstein Handbook of Organic Chemistry, Gmelin Handbook of Inorganic and Organometallic Chemistry, US Patent and Trademark Office Database, and world and European patents. Database of chemical structures, their associated chemical and physical properties, reaction and synthesis information, and bibliographic data. Can be searched by reaction, substance/structure, property, and citation. Tutorial from UMich Library; Tutorial from Reaxys
  • Scopus
    Scholarly journal articles with a heavy emphasis on science topics. Search by topic or author. Scopus also includes citation searching--what sources have cited an article or author. 1966 to present for general searching; 1996-present for citation searching. Tutorial
  • Compendex
    Good for chemical, biochemical, biomedical engineering topics. Over 5,600 journals, trade magazines and conference proceedings indexed annually. Updated weekly, coverage from 1970-present. Tutorial
  • Methods in Organic Synthesis
  • Organic Synthesis
    Covers preparation of important organic molecules and the illustration of novel synthetic methods. Contains all of the eleven Collective Volumes as well as Annual Volumes and Indices. Organic Syntheses procedures may be accessed either via the tables of contents of individual volumes ("journal mode") or by conducting structure and keyword searches ("database mode"). Structure searching requires the ChemDraw plugin.
  • Other Chemistry Databases
    Access to important new developments in organic synthesis. It covers such topics as new reactions and reagents, functional group changes, the introduction of chiral centres, and enzyme and biological transformations. Items are selected for inclusion in MOS only where there is detail of novel or interesting features in organic synthetic methods so that there are no routine preparations to plough through.
