Chemistry & Biochemistry

Find resources for chemistry & biochemistry research, courses, and literature searching in this guide.

Recommended Databases

For research in chemistry and access to conference proceedings, book chapters, and peer reviewed journal articles, we recommend these databases.

While it's not a database, ChemDraw is a valuable tool for chemists and chemistry students as well, which we have access to via Randall Library.

Helpful Websites

These web resources provide specific information, rather than access to scientific literature.

Open Access Repositories

The resources below are freely available databases that may include a variety of material: preprint (draft or preliminary) versions of articles, conference papers and/or posters, book chapters, white papers, and more. These repositories help speed up dissemination and enhance discoverability and access to early-stage scholarship across disciplines. 

It is important to note that these materials have likely not been edited or benefited from the pivotal role of peer-review, which validates and improves the quality of final published journal articles.
