Finding 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.
Classic 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.
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
Online 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 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.
