Dialogues Concerning Two New Sciences

By Galileo Galilei - translated by Henry Crew and Alfonso de Salvio in 1914 and now available as an electronic text.
Essential Practices for Managing Chemical Reactivity Hazards Is useful for safety managers, chemists, and engineers alike, helps both small and large companies identify, address, and manage chemical reactivity hazards. Free distribution of this book on has been made possible by the Center for Chemical Process Safety, US Occupational Safety and Health Administration, US Environmental Protection Agency, American Chemistry Council, Synthetic Organic Chemical Manufacturers Association, and Knovel Corporation.
International Critical Tables of Numeric Data, Physics, Chemistry and Technology - 7 volumes and index - (first electronic edition). ICT offers data on physical, thermodynamic, mechanical, and other key properties and is a major reference source used by those involved in chemistry, physics, and engineering.
knovel Critical Tables Is a brand new reference featuring tables of properties for commonly used chemical compounds in the physical properties tables. kCT has expanded the original 6,000 chemical compounds in the physical properties tables of International Critical Tables to more than 13,000 compounds.
Smithsonian Critical Tables (9th revised edition) Comprising 901 tables concentrating on a broad scope of common physical and chemical data, the information provided is of general interest to scientists and engineers, and of particular interest to those involved with physics in its larger sense. Requires Adobe Acrobat

Handbook of Mathematical Functions with Formulas, Graphs, and Mathematical Tables

Edited by Abramowitz and Stegun, this handbook has been designed to provide scientific investigators with a comprehensive and self-contained summary of the mathematical functions that arise in physical and engineering problems.
National Academy of Sciences National Academy of Sciences Biographical Memoirs have been published since 1877, and are "brief biographies of deceased National Academy of Sciences members, written by those who knew them or their work". They provide "a personal and scholarly view of the lives and work of America's most distinguished scientists and a biographical history of science in the United States.

National Institute of Standards Chemistry Webbook

This site provides thermochemical, thermophysical, and ion energetics data compiled by NIST under the Standard Reference Data Program.
Organic Chemistry Portal Organic Chemistry Portal

The Organic Chemistry Portal has for ten years featured thousands of organic reactions. The name reaction section shows detailed mechanisms and examples from current literature: reactions/. Basic reactions are also listed, such as esterification or nucleophilic substitution. All name reactions and many other synthetic procedures are clustered here: Other useful sections include the molecular property explorer (under Chemistry Tools), and job vacancies.

Organic Synthesis Organic Synthesis Organic Syntheses provides the chemistry community with annual collections of detailed, reliable, and carefully checked procedures for the synthesis of organic compounds. Some procedures explain practical methods for preparing specific compounds of interest. Other procedures show significant synthetic methods with general utility. Each procedure is written in considerable detail and each reaction and all characterization data has been carefully "checked" for reproducibility in the laboratory.
Selected Internet Resources for Chemistry Selected Internet Resources for Chemistry (SIRCh) Is an extensive collection of prime chemistry Internet resources compiled and maintained by Gary Wiggins of Indiana University.
SDBS: Integrated Spectral Data Base System for Organic Compounds


Integrated Spectral Data Base System for Organic Compounds. Offers free access to six different spectra. The spectra are EI mass, 1H decoupled 13C NMR, 1H NMR pattern (90 and/or 400 MHz), 1H NMR parameter (300 MHz pattern generated), FT-IR, laser-Raman, and ESR. Download is limited to 50 per day. The National Institute of Materials and Chemical Research of Tokyo, Japan, the producer of this database, measured most of the spectra. There are almost 100,000 spectra information in the database.
Thermodex Is an index of selected thermodynamic data handbooks. This site contains records for printed handbooks and compilations of thermodynamic and thermophysical data for chemical compounds. Type of compound and/or property could be used to search, and the database will return a list of handbooks that might contain the data. ThermoDex is based primarily on the holdings of the Mallet Chemistry Library at the University of Texas at Austin.
National Library of Medicine: TOXLINE, TOXNET TOXLINE

A TOXNET database by the U.S. National Library of Medicine: TOXLINE is a bibliographic database with an assortment of citations from specialized journals and other sources. It provides references covering the biochemical, pharmacological, physiological, and toxicological effects of drugs and other chemicals. Most of TOXLINE's bibliographic citations contain abstracts and/or indexing terms and Chemical Abstract Service (CAS) Registry Numbers. Years covered and Updates: TOXLINE references date from the 1840s to the present. New ones are added weekly.

ToxRefDb ToxRefDB Computational Toxicology Research Program: search the toxicological profile for 470+ chemicals. Search by chemical name, CAS number, effect type, target and study type. Reference tools include Aggregated Computational Toxicology Resource (ACToR), where you can perform structure and assay searches, and ToxCast, a tool for predicting potentially toxic species.
