Aldrich/ACD Library of FT NMR Spectra (Pro Version)
Electronic version of the print title The Aldrich Library of 13 C and 1 H FT NMR Spectra 3 vol. set (QD96.F68 P67 1993). The Electronic Library contains CNMR and HNMR spectra of 11,828 organic compounds as well as information about their physico-chemical properties. You can browse through the database, perform searches according to catalog parameters (catalog number, CAS number, formula, name, and book references, print spectrum, as well as perform some basic operations with a spectrum (Peak picking and integration). In addition there are features such as multi-level searching using search lists, searching according to molecular weight, chemical properties(boiling point, melting point, etc.), structures and sub-structures, spectral parameters(peaks and solvent), searching for portions of the spectrum, and substructure search. It is also possible to create and modify reports using the ACD/ ChemSketch chemical graphics application.

Beilstein Handbook (via Reaxys) (1772 - Current)
Access chemical data in the areas of organic, organo-metallic, and inorganic chemistry. Databases included are the Beilstein Handbook, the Gmelin Handbook, selected literature from 1772 to today, and organic chemistry and life science patents from US (since 1976), World and European (since 1978) patent publications. Reaxys is updated monthly.

Cambridge Structural Database
Cambridge Structural Database (CSD) contains crystal structure information for over 245,000 organic and metal organic compounds. All of these crystal structures have been analysed using X-ray or neutron diffraction techniques. For each crystallographic entry in the CSD there are three distinct types of information stored. These are conveniently categorised in terms of their "dimensionality": bibliographic information, chemical connectivity, 3D Molecular Structure, and 3D Crystal Structure. The web version provides a full range of text/numeric search options, in addition to more complex search functionality, including: substructure searching,and reduced cell searching, similarity searching.

Note: This version supercedes the cd-rom version.
