Chemistry and Chemical Engineering: Find Articles

Introduce data and information resources in Chemistry, Chemical Engineering, and related fields for Mines community.

Mines Library Catalog Search

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.

Core Electronic Databases in Chemistry and Chemical Engineering

The databases listed below are your essential tools to run specific and/or comprehensive search on a Chemistry or Chemical Engineering topic.
