Notepad This document is already owned by the University of Kentucky. Please Contact the Shaver Engineering Library at 859-257-4364.

When We Don't Own a Standard
If we do not own a copy of the standard that you need, click on the shopping cart (or Buy this standard) to request that the Libraries purchase it. When you "View Basket Checkout" (top of the left navigation bar), you will need to fill out a form. Please include your name, department, phone number and email. You will receive notice that it has been forwarded for purchase. If approved for purchase, you may receive a copy electronically. However, some standards are available only in paper. If this is the case, you will be notified when to pick it up at the Shaver Engineering Library.

When Purchase Requests are Not Approved
Some standards are extremely expensive. If your purchase request is denied, it will probably be because purchasing it would be cost-prohibitive. Contact Susan K. Smith, Head - Shaver Engineering Library at 257-7176 or Sue Smith for further information.

Chemical Abstracts (CA) includes extensive coverage of general chemistry and chemistry-related disciplines such as biochemistry, materials science, physical chemistry, pharmacy and chemical engineering. It indexes over 8,000 journals, patents worldwide, technical reports, conference proceedings, books, and dissertations, and contains over 16 million abstracts. In addition, it provides compound identification. The registry file contains more than 22 million substance records, including more than 16 million organic compounds and 3 million biosequences. In an average working day, CAS adds approximately 2,500 document records and 11,000 substance registrations.

SciFinder contains abstracts and structures. See the SciFinder Scholar website for additional information.

Please remember to run your searches in Reaxys. The two databases cover different time periods and are complementary. Neither one alone provides a complete chemical search.

One may search by:

  • Chemical Substance or Reaction: Explore chemical substances by chemical name, chemical structure, formulas, or CAS Registry Numbers.
  • Research Topic
  • Author Name
  • Specific Reference: Find literature by CA abstract number or patent number.

With SciFinder Scholar, you can also:

  • Get reactions, starting from structures of interest
  • Find specific CA journal or patent abstracts by entering the abstract or patent numbers
  • Refine your answer set by author name, document type, or publication year
