Chemistry & Biochemistry Research Guide: Encyclopedias / Dictionaries

Information resources for chemistry and biochemistry researchers and students.

These reference works contain authoritative articles (and some data) on topics in chemistry and related science/engineering disciplines. Written by experts in their respective fields, the articles contain bibliographies to journal articles for further information. You can browse each reference work by topic or article title, or search across the full text.

Kirk-Othmer and Ullmann's cover all aspects of chemistry and chemical engineering, while the other encyclopedias are more specialized.
