CHEMnetBASE is an electronic collection of several major reference works for chemistry and related sciences from Chapman and Hall/CRC Press. Each work is searchable separately. They include:

  • Combined Chemical Dictionary, consisting of:
    • Dictionary of Inorganic and Organometallic Compounds
    • Dictionary of Natural Products
    • Dictionary of Organic Compounds
    • Dictionary of Drugs
    • Dictionary of Analytical Reagents
  • Dictionary of Commonly Cited Compounds
  • The Handbook of Chemistry & Physics
  • Polymers: A Property Database
  • Properties of Organic Compounds

The Combined Chemical Dictionary is fully sub-structure searchable as is Properties of Organic Compounds. (Note: Structure searching requires a free browser plug-in, which may not yet be installed on UCSB Library workstations.) The Handbook of Chemistry & Physics and Polymers, A Property Database are fully searchable and offer the ability to produce tables customized to the user's preferences.
