Web of Science – Brought to us by the St. Olaf College Libraries!

Chemical Data-Related:

Web Elements
WebElements aims to be a high quality source of chemistry information on the WWW relating to the periodic table. Coverage is such that professional scientists and students at school interested in chemistry and other sciences will all find something useful.

Data on the elements.  Every fact is referenced!  Find things like densities, allotropes, electron configurations, enthalpies of fusion, ionization energies, melting and boiling points and much, much more.

ChemSpy Chemical Searching helps you to find chemistry and chemical engineering related terms, definitions, synonyms, acronyms and abbreviations. Also search forms for finding MSDS/safety data, scientific publications in over 20.000 different journals, physical data of chemical compounds, worldwide patents and spectral data are available.
