Top Resources

  1. A collection of chemical substances, reactions and literature references. Covers all aspects of chemistry (Chemical Abstracts online). NOTE: For use by current SFU faculty, staff and registered students only.
    Authorized users must register with a valid SFU email address in order to access SciFinder.
  2. 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.
  3. Detailed index covering organic and inorganic chemistry. Includes patents. Provides access to chemical reactions and physical, chemical and bioactivity data.
  4. Wide coverage of searchable ready-reference resource of chemical and physical data on properties of inorganic and organic compounds.
  5. A searchable full-text collection of American Chemical Society (ACS) chemistry journals.

Other Resources

  1. Analytical scientific methods developed, reviewed and approved by the American Society of Brewing Chemists (ASBC) to ensure quality, consistency and safety of malt-based beverages and their ingredients. Comes with built-in calculators, videos, spreadsheets, audio PowerPoints, and color images to help users understand and perfom analytical methods better or more quickly.
  2. Ebooks in bioscience
