  • For a more “bio” search focus, also try PubMed.
  • For a more engineering or materials focus, also try Compendex.

Premier database of journal articles and patents in chemistry, as well as chemical engineering, physics, materials science, nanotechnology, etc. Includes the CAS Registry of 60+ million compounds (most with some property data) and the CASREACT reaction database. Search by topic, author, substance (name, structure, CAS Registry Number, molecular formula), substructure or reaction. Draw structures using the CAS structure editor or copy/paste from ChemDraw. For UCSD faculty/staff/students only.

Search/browse 2500+ science and engineering encyclopedias, handbooks, texts, and databases. Advanced features include numerical range searching and interactive graphs and tables. Excellent resource for chemical & physical property data—including safety data.
