Chemical Literature: Structures, patents and more

A guide for use by students in the Chemical Literature class.

Special types of searching

Searching chemical literature is more than finding journal articles using keywords. You need to be able to find industry information, including what patents may exist for compounds and often, finding all there is to know about a compound means you need to find compounds with similar structures, which is not something you can usually do using words alone. Fortunately there are lots of good (many are even free!) tools to help you do this.
