Find Key Literature References
The Dictionary of Organic Compounds includes key literature references to spectra, crystallography, synthesis, and review papers.

The Dictionary of Organic Compounds (DOC), part of CHEMnetBASE, contains chemical, structural, and bibliographic information on over 290,000 of the most important organic compounds. Data provided includes names and synonyms, formulae, chemical structures, CAS Registry numbers, physical properties, and key literature citations.

Search the Two Largest Chemistry Databases
It is possible to search Reaxys and SciFinder by a chemical structure, reaction scheme, and bibliographic data. Reaxys is the largest handbook of physical property data and includes links to articles that contain spectra. SciFinder is the largest chemistry database and is compiling handbook type of information - properties and links to spectral diagrams - in the full display of chemical substance records.
Reaxys Xcelerate is a fully integrated electronic chemistry database that contains organic, inorganic and organometallic substance, property, and reaction data for small molecules housed previously in the Beilstein, Gmelin, and Chemistry Patent databases. Includes coverage from 1771-present for 400 journals. Coverage also includes English language-only patents from the major chemistry patent classes of the U.S., European, and World Patent Offices. Reaxys Xcelerate is a premium version of Reaxys that allows faster analysis of results using visualization tools, automate synthesis planning, and use flexible reporting outputs for sharing their results and annotations with colleagues.

SciFinder is the most comprehensive database for coverage of chemistry & chemical engineering. It has the world's largest collection of organic and inorganic substance information. The web version of SciFinder provides integrated access to CAPlus, CAS Registry, CASREACT, CHEMLIST, and CHEMCATS which are produced by Chemical Abstracts Service, and to MEDLINE which is produced by the U.S. National Library of Medicine. Sources covered in SciFinder include 10,000 journals, patents from 61 patent authorities, book chapters, conference proceedings, dissertations, evaluated reference works, technical reports, as well as book reviews and biographical information.
