To start, you may use the Mines Library Catalog to search for research articles for a broad understanding of your research topic. Use the faceted filters on the right side of the search result to narrow it down to Resource Types / Articles.
Please note: not all research articles which the library subscribes to are searchable through the catalog, which is particularly true for Chemistry related articles. Only use the catalog for a broad search to get started and use specialized databases such as SciFinder and Web of Science to run more specific and comprehensive searches on your topic.
The databases listed below are your essential tools to run specific and/or comprehensive search on a Chemistry or Chemical Engineering topic.
Browse the major publishers' sites below for articles on a sub-discipline in Chemistry and Chemical Engineering.
When you cannot get to the fulltext of an article behind a pay wall, there is a chance that an Open Access version of the article, either the publisher's PDF version, preprint, or the peer-reviewed manuscript etc., would be available. Try oaDOI.org or use the widget below to find it if you have the DOI (digital object identifier) of the article.

Journal title abbreviations are often used in reference sections of an article and some of them can be difficult to decipher. For Chemistry journal titles, the following two tools can help.
If you know the title of the journal you need to browse, you may use the Find e-Journal tool to search for it in our Catalog and use the Link to Fulltext online to access the journals we subscribe to. We may have access to some journals on multiple platforms, which may or may not be the original publisher's site. Browsing journals here will ensure you see all the access points we have for a journal.
