1779-present; web-based discovery tool for organic, organometallic, and inorganic chemistry experimental substance property data (including physical, spectral, pharmacological, toxicological, and ecological) and single and multistep reaction data. Combines the content of the former CrossFire databases including Beilstein and Gmelin. Reaction and substance data are experimentally validated (not calculated) from selected journals and patent literature. Reaxys integrates reaction and substance data with structure search, synthesis planning, analysis tools, and output formats.

Current edition of the print Handbook plus tables from older editions. Some tables are interactive and can be downloaded. Search by keyword in the text or substance/property search (by name, formula, CAS Registry No., molecular weight, and/or subject); back-of-the-book index is not interactive.
The Merck Index is an encyclopedia of chemicals, drugs and biologicals with over 11,500 monographs on single substances or groups of related compounds. It also includes an appendix with monographs on organic name reactions. It was published by the United States pharmaceutical company Merck & Co. from 1889 until 2013. The title was acquired by the Royal Society of Chemistry starting in 2014. The Online edition is updated regularly.
Current; Knovel aggregates the content (books and databases) of major science and engineering publishers. The resource is searched like a database for book titles, topics, and, more importantly, specific data within interactive tables and graphs.
1980-present; features the full text of over 68,000 peer-reviewed papers presented at MRS (Materials Research Society) meetings with papers added daily. Proceedings papers can be browsed, sorted by meeting or topic, and are fully searchable by author name, paper title, volume number and keyword.
1800's-present; PubMed is a service of the U.S. National Library of Medicine that includes 26+ million citations from MEDLINE and other life science journals for biomedical articles. PubMed includes links to full text articles and other related resources. [This resource is publicly available.] The Library also has access to MEDLINE via Web of Science and via Ovid Medline.
1969-present; Compendex is the most comprehensive interdisciplinary engineering database in the world. Compendex references over 5,000 international engineering sources including journal, conference, and trade publications.
The ASM Alloy Phase Diagrams Center allows subscribers to explore, search and view more than 32,500 binary and ternary phase diagrams and associated phase data for more than 6200 systems from their Web browsers.
The Alloy Center enables searching in one easy step across ASM property data, performance charts, and processing guidelines for specific metals and alloys. The Alloy finder features alloy designations and trade names from around the world and includes information on composition, producer, tensile properties and similar alloys. The ASM property data features mechanical properties, physical properties and processing characteristics for most industrial alloys. Coatings data features information on commercial coating processing. Corrosion data features information on corrosion of specific alloys in specific environments. Data sheets & diagrams feature material data sheets from Alloy digest, Heat treater's guides, and other publications. Data for time-temperature curves, creep curves and fatigue curves from ASM atlas publications is also included
Current; the Cambridge Structural Database (WebCSD) consists of the bibliographic, chemical, and crystallographic (single crystal and powder diffraction) records for organic molecules and metal-organic compounds whose 3-D structures have been determined using x-diffraction and/or neutron diffraction. Almost all records have the three-dimensional coordinate data for at least non-hydrogen atoms. The crystal structure data comes from the open literature or direct deposits by researchers. Search by substructure, reduced cell, similarity, or text/numeric.
Current; e-EROS contains a database of over 50,000 reactions and around 3,800 of the most frequently consulted reagents and is fully searchable by structure and substructure, reagent, reaction type, experimental conditions etc. and allows sophisticated full text searches.
1913-present; Inorganic Crystal Structure Database (ICSD) consists of peer-reviewed data entries including their atomic coordinates. In the database are structures of elements and compounds with 2-5 different elements. Each year about 7000 new structures are added and previous content updated. Legacy crystal structure data for metallic and intermetallic compounds, with known atomic coordinates, from the U.S. National Institute of Standards & Technology have been incorporated since 2008. Structure types are comprehensive and searchable. This subscription is for one-user at a time and requires first Brown authentication followed by a specific ICSD login for the Brown user.
