Finding Reaction & Property Information for Organic Compounds
- Tutorial: How to Find Chemical and Physical Property InformationFinding chemical and physical property data is not always easy because there is no one place where all types of data for all substances is located, and it is not always clear where to look or whether you have looked in the right places. This tutorial will show you how and where to search.
- Merck Index: An Encyclopedia of Chemicals, Drugs, and BiologicalsClassic reference source for chemists with over 10,000 entries on drugs and pharmaceuticals, common organic chemicals and laboratory reagents. The entries include data such as chemical names, molecular formula, chemical structure, physical data, and literature references.
- Properties of Organic CompoundsSubstructure-searchable database (with plug-in) that includes physical & spectral data and structures for more than 29,000 commonly-used organic compounds.
- SDBS (Spectral Database for Organic Compounds)Free online searchable database with spectral data for ~34,000 organic molecules for electron impact Mass spectrum (EI-MS), Fourier transform infrared (FT-IR), 1H and 13C nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR), laser Raman, and electron spin resonance (ESR)) spectra. Hosted by the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science & Technology in Japan
- Organic SynthesesOnline access to classic reference work giving detailed synthetic methods. Procedures are independently checked & safety warnings given if warranted. More recent entries tend to describe preparation of compound classes. Structure searchable
- Science of SynthesisScience of Synthesis is an electronic version of the reference work by the same name; it also provides access to Houben-Weyl (Methods of Organic Chemistry) which includes references back to 1835. Science of Synthesis covers both organic and organometallic synthetic methods. The methods are evaluated and include full experimental details.
