Chemistry titles

  • Copper Technical Reference Library  additional information about this title  

    The Copper Technical Reference Library provides an online bibliographic database of the world's literature on copper, copper alloys and copper technology since 1965. The Copper Technical Reference Library covers copper technology from smelting and hydrometallurgy through the performance of copper and copper alloys in their end-use applications and service environments. It references data on the properties and performance of copper and copper alloys and on applications of the copper metals. Sources covered include over 3,000 periodicals, conference proceedings, technical reports, trade journal/newsletter items, patents, books, and press releases.

  • Knovel  additional information about this title  

    Engineering indexing/full-text database that covers the publisher's books and reference sources and allows searching for numeric or tabular data. On the Knovel platform. An app for iOS and Android tablets, “My Knovel ToGo”, is available to permit offline reading.

  • Materials Science Index  additional information about this title  

    This database is a comprehensive index to world literature on the business and industry aspect of materials science, engineering, aerospace and advanced technologies. News, product and process developments, plant development and construction, international trade data, government regulations and management issues are all covered.
