Chemistry and Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering

Contact: Jeffery Loo

Scope of Collection
The collection is selected to meet the needs of the College of Chemistry, which includes the Department of Chemistry and the Department of Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering.

Strengths
The collection's strengths are in the areas of physical chemistry, organometallics, inorganic chemistry, and methods of synthesis.

Primary Languages and Formats
Primarily English; some Russian, German and French. The online journal collection is particularly strong as is the access to online specialized databases in chemistry such as SciFinder, Reaxys, Springer Materials, and Science of Synthesis. There is an increasing trend to acquire monographs, reference handbooks, data compilations and encyclopedias in digital format.

Related Collections
Bioscience (chemical biology, molecular biology, and biotechnology), Physics (chemical physics), Engineering (materials chemistry and nanotechnology) and Doe (history of science)
