CHEM 105: Physical Chemistry Laboratory: Kinetics of Bromination of Acetone (Google Scholar)

Resources to help you find articles and data for your physical chemistry lab experiments. Shortcut:

Kinetics of Bromination of Acetone

Here's an example of using Google Scholar for the "kinetics of bromination of acetone" search that was also run in Web of Science. 

Google Scholar searches scholarly journals down to the article text, which may retrieve articles based full text beyond the abstract, but you may also retrieve significantly larger sets of results to navigate.

To improve your access to the full text articles:

  1. Use VPN if you're off campus
  2. Go to the icon in the upper left, go to Settings >> Library Links and add UC San Diego to enable .

To replicate the "or" searching to find articles with bromination OR halogenation, from the icon in the upper left, go to Advanced Search and use the with at least one of the words option.

You can see how an OR was included in your search, your search terms as they appear in the article titles and text, and links to the articles. Because of the full text searching, more articles were retrieved than in Web of Science, but also more that won't be as relevant.
