How/where to look for org. chem. data?


Dear All,

My question is: how/where do you acquire various data on a particular compound via the Internet?

What I do basically is googling the compound and open the relevant hits and copy/write down the listed phys-chem data. Which is often contradicting and in the end majority vote decides what is true and what not. :)

Is there a better method?

What data are you looking for? The CRC Handbook and Lange's Handbook of Chemistry (my favorite) are good sources for basic data. I bought a Lange's on ebay (or Amazon); it's an older edition (15th), but basic data doesn't change much. I believe every lab should have at least one of the above. You can find (I don't remember where) a version of the Merck Index to download, but I find it hard to use and it takes up a lot of memory. I did love the hardbound edition.

The Merck and EROS exist in html

plus a big pdf of Eros is available, as is the 4th ed of Beilstein and part of the first supplement, and Kirk-Othmer...Ullmanns and K-O can be used as a mounted .iso perhaps.

Thanks for the suggestions!

Getting melting point, boiling point, solubility, etc. data is important for me at the moment. Reason is I'm "developing" a synthesis method from an old journal article which was not written to be treated as a recipe. The article gave description of the synthesis but I struggle with the workup part.

Fortunately hissingnoise' s idea about checking Orgsyn was a very good one in this case! :) There was a different synth for my target molecule and it gave hints for the workup.
