Chemistry / Chemical search engine?


I posted this elsewhere, but I haven't obtained any replies.

I'm trying to find a search engine that allows me to use superscripts, subscripts, misc. in order to find information about certain formulas.

For example, I've tried typing in [Cu(NH_{3})_{4}]^{2+}.
I got some information, but I had to shove things around and figure it out.
But for a majority of things like that, I can't find a good .gov or .org website to help me out.

I don't want to buy tons of books, so I'm wondering if anyone knows of some good, very good, super-duper freaking awesome websites.

p.s.
I don't know how to to do TeX here.

Not all chemicals are bad. Without chemicals such as hydrogen and oxygen, for example, there would be no way to make water, a vital ingredient in beer.

Maybe it's just me, but I could not find [Cu(NH3)4]2+ there. Someone described that website to me a few days ago, but it didn't seem to work too well.

The CAS website itself looks pretty nice. I bet within the next decade or so, a bunch of physicists, mathematicians, programmers, and chemists will get together to build an open-source / free database project to solve some of these problems. Maybe google could give funding...
