The Encyclopedia of Inorganic Chemistry is a comprehensive source on all aspects of inorganic chemistry. It contains a series of alphabetically arranged articles on individual topics with references and notes pointing to related articles. The volumes also contain short entries, which define or explain important concepts and valuable data. Each volume has its own table of contents along with the tables of content of all previous volumes arranged in alphabetical order. Volume 8 contains the series index.
Science of Synthesis is a reference work that provides information on preparative methods in synthetic chemistry and is the 5th edition of the Houben-Weyl Methods in Organic Chemistry series. It is an authoritative collection of reviews with information on reactions and experimental procedures. Classification of Science of Synthesis is based on the product belonging to one of six broad categories: organometallics, hetarenes, 4/3—X bonds, 2C—X bonds, 1C---X bond, and all C bonds. Each volume covers a specific class of compounds called product classes, which are further subdivided into product subclasses.
The print editions are available at the chemistry library under QD258 .M44.
SciPlanner is a CAS research tool, found in SciFinder, that acts as an interactive workspace. It allows users to create customized reaction pathways as well as organize and manage SciFinder results in ways that they find most useful. Users can integrate reactions, experimental procedures, substances, and references from multiple documents” (CAS).

The specifications prepared by the Committee on Analytical Reagent of the American Chemical Society are intended to serve for reagents and standard-grade reference materials to be used in precise analytical work of a general nature. The term “reagent-grade chemical” implies that it is a substance of sufficient purity to be used in most chemical analyses or reactions.

Solubility data can be found in a number of different formats. Some reference sources list solubilities of a chemical as Slightly, Very, and Insoluble for various solvents. Other sources will list solubility in g/kg, g/L, weight%, etc at different temperatures.
Some reference books will have both types of data in different parts of the book: for example, the CRC Handbook has basic solubility data in the properties sections at the front of the book but also has more detailed tables further on.

Patent Searching and Retrieval
Have a citation and can't decipher the journal abbreviation? Try these links:
If you still can't find the article, it doesn't necessarily mean we don't have it! Ask your librarian for help.
DOI stands for Digital Object Identifier, and it looks something like this: 10.1002/anie.201003214. DOIs are used to uniquely identify and locate a particular publication. You can bring up the full text of a particular article by entering the DOI in LibrarySearch.
You can also use a DOI to create a permanent link. Click here to read more about DOIs
The U of T Library catalogue is the best place to determine if we own a specific book or journal. Almost all libraries at U of T include their materials in the main catalogue. Searching for chemistry specific information such as chemical names, molecular formulas or properties is not very effective in the catalogue since the key words are limited.(Scifnder and Reaxys are much better at this).
If you are unable to find a book or journal in the catalogue, please check with library staff as if may be part of a collection or series. IF we do not have what you need then you can order it via interlibrary loan (RACER).
If what you need is at another U of T campus, it can be delivered within 48 hours to the main library at your campus for pickup (use the Request feature under "Options")
