Chemistry POWERSEARCHSearches following databases simultaneously: Academic Search Complete, General Science Abstracts, MEDLINE, Science and Technology Collection.
Science Citation Index Expanded (1899-present)ISI’s Science Citation Index Expanded provides access to approximately 8,300 journals in the natural, life, physical, mathematical, and engineering sciences going back as far as 1899. Each article contains full indexing with abstracts as well as complete bibliographies, allowing for cited reference searching. Full-Text links are provided for articles which are part of the library’s collection.
Kirk-Othmer Encyclopedia of Chemical TechnologyWritten by prominent scholars from industry, academia, and research institutions, this encyclopedia presents a wide scope of articles on chemical substances — including their properties, manufacturing, and uses. It also focuses on industrial processes and unit operations in chemical engineering, as well as scientific subjects related to the field. Environmental and health issues concerning chemical technology are also addressed. The Kirk-Othmer Encyclopedia is updated monthly to reflect new changes in chemical technology, and each article contains an extensive list of references for further research.
American Chemical Society Journals An online package of 35 full-text chemistry and chemistry related journals sponsored by the American Chemical Society. The entire package may be searched by keywords, or users may browse titles or perform more specific searches, such as author or article title searches. The oldest articles available extend back to 1896. Full-text options include both HTML and PDF formats.
CRC Handbook of Chemistry and PhysicsThe CRC Handbook of Chemistry and Physics is a large one-volume reference source containing data on the properties and constants of the elements and other matter. It includes data for such things as boiling points, melting points, freezing points, the effects of pressure, viscosity, acoustic qualities, acidity, as well as various weights and measures. There are also such prosaic subjects as antidotes for poisons, the rules for the naming of organic compounds, the surface tensions of fused salts, the percent composition of anti-freeze solutions, spark-gap voltages, the Greek alphabet, and atmospheric properties at different elevations. It even features biographies for famous chemists and physicists.
