Chemistry & Biochemistry: Articles / Patents (Databases)

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, PubMed, Compendex/Inspec are also excellent databases depending on your area of focus. Google Scholar may find articles not covered in the other databases because of the full text searching, but the other databases have stronger advanced searching/refining features.

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.
