Literature Search Engines

ACS JOURNALS ONLINE - Search Tables of Contents of nearly every journal published by the ACS.

Wiley-VCH - Lists the dozen or so European chemisry journals published by Wiley-VCH, including Angewandt Chemie, Hevetica Chimica Acta and others.

Royal Society of Chemistry - Includes the Dalton Transactions, Faraday Transactions and Perkin's Transactions, Chem Comm., etc.

Synlett and Synthesis from Thieme - Publishers of Synthesis and Synlett.

Organic Syntheses - Since 1921, Organic Syntheses has provided the chemistry community with annual collections of detailed, reliable, and carefully checked procedures for the synthesis of organic compounds. Some procedures describe practical methods for the preparation of specific compounds of interest, while other procedures illustrate important synthetic methods with general utility.

Science Direct - Links to the Elsevier Family of Journals.

Other Search Engines

Sigma-Aldrich - This links directly to their searchable online catalog.

ChemFinder - Search for info on compounds by CAS, MW, name, etc.
