JoVE Science Education Library: is a video library aimed at teaching scientific fundamentals through video demonstrations. Subject areas covered include Biolog, Engineering, Chemistry, Clinical Skills, Environmental Sciences, Psychology and Social Psychology. This library has been made available free of charge by JoVE until June 15, 2020.
Chemistry and Biochemistry
carefully curated property data on a large number of organic compounds, and a few common inorganics. Included data are thermochemical, thermodynamic, gas phase ion and spectral data.
This free chemical property database is developed by the U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). The WebBook is a compilation of property data that is reported in the primary literature.
a free chemical structure database that mines the web for chemical property data. A secondary source of properties, ChemSpider provides well-referenced basic properties, experimental properties and predicted properties to over 67 million substances.
Search by chemical name, chemical identifier and chemical structures to find:
- Literature references
- Physical properties
- Interactive spectra
- Chemical suppliers
These resources provide information on hazardous chemicals, laboratory safety, and the safe handling, storing and use of chemical substances.
A patent is a protection granted by a government that gives the owner the right to keep others from making, using or selling an invention. A Canadian patent applies within Canada for 20 years from the date of filing of a patent application.
Consult these resources to find the titles of journals and their abbreviations.
Review articles are critical evaluations of all of the research that has already been published on a specific topic. They often provide a good overview of a topic. These are some journals that publish review articles in this field.
Use these resources to find references for the synthesis or reactions of different compounds.
CAS Registry Numbers (CAS RN) are unique numeric identifiers assigned to specific substances by the Chemical Abstract Service (CAS), a department of the American Chemical Society. CAS RNs are useful when substance searching in chemistry databases, because a single search by CAS RN retrieves results for chemical names, synonyms, trade names, and systematic names of the same substance.
If you know the chemical name you can find its CAS RN by searching the following databases.
