SciFinder is a comprehensive database indexing the literature of chemistry & related sciences. SciFinder is useful for locating articles concerned with specific chemical substances and reactions. You must be a CCNY patron to register to use this database. To self-register visit the following URL: http://http://tinyurl.com/nplld7a
This preprint server, that serves the global chemistry community, is co-owned, and collaboratively managed by the American Chemical Society (ACS), German Chemical Society (GDCh) and the Royal Society of Chemistry. Nearly all the scholarly chemistry journals will accept for publication, preprints posted here. But authors should always check the instructions for authors for the specific journal.
A free preprint server currently limited to publishing unpublished research results intended for publication in the two Beilstein Institute journals; Beilstein Journal of Organic Chemistry, and Beilstein Journal of Nanotechnology.
This database from Chemical Abstracts Service (CAS) a division of the American Chemical Society, contains the CAS Registry Number®, chemical names (both formal and common), molecular formulas, and structures or sequences for nearly 500,000 chemicals of widespread general public interest, and all 118 elements of the Periodic Table. It also provides links to relevant Wikipedia articles.
Allows you to search the National Library of Medicine's (NLM) database of over 400,000 chemicals, and locate information about these substances in the NLM family of databases. You search by chemical name, CAS Registry Number, molecular formula, and structure or substructure. Only a small fraction of known substances are included. In contrast, the Explore Substances section of SciFinder covers millions of substances. All the data here will eventually be incorporated into PubChem.
A search engine that aggregates and indexes chemical structures and their associated information into a single searchable repository. You can view a short video about ChemSpider at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eje0AmntuII&hd=1. In April 2018 the editors announced that they are hoping to do more retrospective curation to improve the quality of the data.
An internet search engine that allows you to search several free chemistry databases for substance and calculated property information. Note that free chemistry databases will only give you a small fraction of the information contained in SciFinder.
A free database of commercially-available compounds for virtual screening. ZINC contains over 230 million purchasable compounds in ready-to-dock, 3D formats. ZINC also contains over 750 million purchasable compounds you can search for analogs in under a minute.
A database of bioactive drug-like small molecules. It contains 2-D structures, calculated properties such as LogP, Lipinski parameters, and selected literature references on bioactivities such as binding constants, and pharmacology.
a unique bioinformatics and cheminformatics resource that combines detailed drug (i.e. chemical, pharmacological and pharmaceutical) data with comprehensive drug target (i.e. sequence, structure, and pathway) information. The database contains 7685 drug entries including 1549 FDA-approved small molecule drugs, 155 FDA-approved biotech (protein/peptide) drugs, 89 nutraceuticals and over 6000 experimental drugs. Additionally, 4282 non-redundant protein (i.e. drug target/enzyme/transporter/carrier) sequences are linked to these drug entries. Each DrugCard entry contains more than 200 data fields with half of the information being devoted to drug/chemical data and the other half devoted to drug target or protein data.
In this video produced by the American Chemical Society Division of Chemical Information, Martin Walker points out how recognize when Wikipedia can be a valuable source of information about properties, preparations and uses of chemicals. While this entire video is quite informative, starting just after the 12 minute mark you will see examples of reputable entries having a standardized box (CHEMBOX) on the right side of the screen containing important data and links. The following article from the American Chemical Society's Chemical & Engineering News magazine describes how chemists and chemistry students contribute to Wikipedia http://cen.acs.org/articles/93/i36/Working-Wikipedia.html/. The following article in the Journal of Chemical Education (Volume 93, Issue 3, pages 509–515, 2016) “Improving Information Literacy Skills through Learning To Use and Edit Wikipedia: A Chemistry Perspective”, by Martin A. Walker and Ye Li describes how you can learn to use Wikipedia effectively, and how you can edit Wikipedia articles. Another aide for creating and editing Wikipedia entries: http://wikiedu.org/for-instructors/. Note the Subject-specific entry for chemistry.
Searching by topic or key word should provide you with some of the most active researchers in that field Click Introduction at the bottom of the screen for a description of the features this database offers.
A collection of open access scholarship, (600,000+ articles) dissertations and thesis, independent studies and journals from 202 school and institutions. This Open Access resource is provided as a courtesy from the library, we cannot guarantee full text access.
Google Scholar searches the Web for articles, books, and other scholarly materials in many different disciplines. Most searches return an assortment of citations, abstracts, and links to full text. To link Google Scholar to the City College Library's full text offerings, click 'Scholar Preferences,' type 'City College,' and click 'Find Library.' Then check the box next to 'City College - Find fulltext at CCNY.'
Consolidates the contents of the Office of Scientific and Technical Information (OSTI) Information Bridge and Energy Citations Database. It contains over 2.75 million citations, including citations to 1.4 million journal articles from research sponsored by the United States Department of Energy.
The Internet search engine for chemists and biologists, iScienceSearch is a federated search service that retrieves chemical compound information from a wide variety of databases. An alternate entry point to this search engine is http://isciencesearch.com/issl/
The original Microsoft Academic Search described in detail what journals they covered and the time period covered for each. This was discontinued in 2014. The current version incorporates and reorganizes data from Microsoft’s Bing search engine. But journal coverage is no longer specified.
This database includes many chemistry journals. To see if a journal you are interested in is included, click Journals in NCBI Databases which is under More Resources on the right hand side of the screen.

Aiming to make academic information easily accessible, RefSeek searches more than one billion documents, including web pages, books, encyclopedias, journals, and newspapers, offering comprehensive subject coverage without the information overload of a general search engine—increasing the visibility of academic information.
You can limit your search to scientific discipline. However, note that scientific publishers filed a lawsuit against ResearchGate alleging copyright infringement for papers uploaded to, and shared on, the site by its users https://pubs.acs.org/doi/10.1021/cen-09640-polcon4# Chemical & Engineering News Vol 96, Number 40, Oct. 8, 2018.
