Chemistry & Biochemistry Research Guide: Articles / Patents (Databases)

Information resources for chemistry and biochemistry researchers and students.

Databases for Chemistry Articles and Patents

These are the key databases that index the nanotechnology literature: journals as well as (in some cases) patents and conference proceedings. SciFinder and Web of Science are the best places to start for all chemical topics. Reaxys, Inspec, Compendex, and PubMed are also excellent  databases depending on your area of focus.

How Do I Get the Article?

In most of our databases, you'll see this button next to each reference: .  Clicking this button may open up the article automatically, or you will see options to get the article:

- Online, if available
- In print (linkout to Roger)
- Via interlibrary loan (Request) if we don't have the article.

The  buttons don't appear in SciFinder, but "Link to Other Sources" in the record will connect you to UC-eLinks.
