Top Resources

  1. Covers all aspects of chemistry (Chemical Abstracts online). NOTE: For use by current SFU faculty, staff and registered students only.
  2. Reaxys has extensive coverage of quality and authoritative property, reaction, and workflow information in organic, inorganic and organometalic chemistry. Expert chemists carefully select journals and patents so that only high-quality, experimental data are included in Reaxys. Drawn from the Beilstein and Gmelin Databases.
  3. Online version of the CRC Handbook of Chemistry and Physics
  4. Indexes core journal articles, conference proceedings, and other resources in the sciences, social sciences, arts, and humanities, can be used for citation analysis of research. A citation index contains the references cited by the authors of the publications covered by the index. You can use these references to do a cited reference search. This type of search enables you to find works that cite a previously published work.
