Chemistry & Biochemistry

A guide to library resources for Chemistry and Biochemistry


Boyle's Sceptical Chymist (1661)Welcome to the Library's Chemistry & Biochemistry research guide.  Browse through the menu on the left to find Chemistry and related databases, print & online books, Internet resources, and more.

If you need help, stop by the library to chat with a librarian at the desk, or reach out to us using another option.

For a general search as you're getting started on a paper or project, try Summon. Summon simultaneously searches UMSL's catalog and many other resources.

However, Summon does not index all our resources.  For more targeted searches, use one or more of the individual databases.

If you are looking for a specific journal title, use the Journals by Title link to see if UMSL has access to it. Or if you wish, you can browse our title list of available Engineering & Applied Sciences journals.
