CHEMnetBASE: A Database of Full-Text Chemistry Handbooks


CHEMnetBase includes descriptive and numerical data on chemical, physical and biological properties of compounds; systematic and common names of compounds; literature references; structure diagrams and their associated connection tables.


[ http://www.chemnetbase.com/]


CHEMnetBase includes:


  • Combined Chemical Dictionary (CCD)


    • Dictionary of Commonly Cited Compounds


    • Dictionary of Drugs (Formerly Pharmasource).


    • Dictionary of Inorganic and Organometallic Compounds


    • Dictionary of Natural Products


    • Dictionary of Organic Compounds

  • Handbook of Chemistry & Physics


  • Polymers: A Property Database


  • Properties of Organic Compounds

  • CRCPress Periodic Table Online


  • The Dictionaries available in the Combined Chemical Dictionary can be searched individually or concurrently with all other dictionaries.

    The Combined Chemical Dictionary database contains data for more than 500,000 substances.

    In general, CCD contains the following compounds:


  • The basic fundamental organic and inorganic compounds of simple structure, including the elements, inorganic binary and ternary compounds (hydrides, halides, oxides, sulfides).

  • Comprehensive coverage of virtually every known natural product including those of unknown structure.


  • All currently marketed drugs, including all those listed in generic name compilations (US Adopted Names, International Nonproprietary Names, British Approved Names, Japanese Accepted Names), as well as those undergoing clinical trials.


  • Compounds with an established use such as catalysts, solvents, starting materials, synthetic reagents, analytical reagents.


  • Important coordination compounds, e.g. amines, phosphines, alkoxy complexes, and major well-characterised bioinorganics.


  • Organometallic compounds representative of all important structural types

  • Important biochemicals and minerals.

  • Other compounds of particular interest because of their chemical, structural or biological properties, including many newly synthesised compounds of active research interest.
