Journal Articles

American Chemical Society Publications
This journal archive can be used to locate scholarly (peer-reviewed) articles on all topics in chemistry: organic and inorganic chemistry, nanotechnology, analytical and materials chemistry, and more.
Applied Science and Technology Abstracts
This general science database can be used to locate articles about chemistry research, chemical processes, and much more.
The arXiv includes preprints of academic papers in the fields of mathematics, physics, computer science, quantitative biology and statistics.
Chemical Abstracts
Chemical Abstracts contains thousands of articles about chemicals, chemical processes, chemistry research and more.
JSTOR is a journal archive that can be used to locate articles on all topics in chemistry.
Nature Precedings
Created by Nature Publishing, this database provides access to preprints of academic papers in genetics, biology, microbiology, and more.
PubChem consists of three databases: Compound, Substance, and BioAssay. Compound and Substance database records provide basic physical data, attributes important in drug discovery, and structures; Substance describes samples containing one or more compounds, whereas Compound describes specific molecules. BioAssay provides datasets of compound bioactivity against various targets; to date nearly all datasets are cancer screens from the National Cancer Institute.
ToxNet specializes in information about toxic and hazardous chemicals, compounds, and molecules. It contains information about harmful dosages, side effects and symptoms, half-life length, and much more.

Web Sites

CalTech Library Guides: Chemistry
This is an extensive list of vetted resources on all topics in chemistry, including applied chemistry, crystallography, standards, and organic chemistry. Also included in the list are links to dozens of professional chemistry societies, online books, and biographies.
Chemistry Guide
This is a portal with over 215 chemistry resources. Everyone from beginners to advanced chemists can find something of interest here.
National Center for Biotechnology Information
The NCBI is a clearing house for articles, fact sheets, and government documents about genetics, microbiology, health, and related topics.
Organic Chemistry Resources Worldwide
This site, whose aim is to provide an organized set of links to information for organic chemistry researchers, fully achieves this objective. Of particular note are the experimental and analytical sections. The practical advice given in selecting experimental conditions is unique for a web site, and the analytical section provides coverage of all major spectroscopic techniques used by organic chemists.
Periodic Table of Elements and Chemistry
This popular online periodic table contains atomic weights, extensive lists of properties, and basic facts about the elements.
Saccharomyces Genome Database
This is a scientific database of the molecular biology and genetics of the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae, which is commonly known as baker's or budding yeast. searches over 36 databases and 1,850 selected websites, offering 200 million pages of authoritative U.S. government science information, including research and development results.
This database provides comprehensive,high-quality and freely accessible resource of protein sequence and functional information.
