Essential resource for finding data and associated literature references for organic and inorganic/organometallic compounds. Search by structure, molecular formula and text-based facts. Learn more about Reaxys content.
e-EROS, online version of the multi-volume Encyclopedia of Reagents for Organic Synthesis, is an invaluable resource for locating suitable reagents for chemical reactions. It is text-searchable for reagent name, catalyst or solvent, or bibliographic information. Search by structure or substructure for reagents or reactions. Browse by reagent name or structure. This database which provides access to literature dating from the 1940's is updated several times through the year.
Access to volumes published since 1995. A long-established, multi-volume treatise for organic chemistry, with each volume focused on comprehensive coverage of the chemistry, reactivity, applications and more about a particular functional groups. Older volumes are included in Patai’s Chemistry of the Functional Groups (Book Series); see below.
Web version of the Cambridge Structural Database, the primary repository for small molecule crystallography data. For increased functionality including analysis of individual data, talk with Sally Wyman about installation of the Cambridge Structural Database (CSD) client software.
