The Library recently acquired two important online reference works in Chemistry.The Kirk-Othmer Encyclopedia of Chemical Technology is the premier work for chemical engineering, and e-EROS, the online version of the Encyclopedia of Reagents of Organic Synthesis.
e-EROS is described as “the one source for in-depth information on reagents and catalysts at your fingertips,” offering systematic and exhaustive coverage of reagents used in organic synthesis. The A to Z listing covers classical reagents, new “designer” reagents and catalysts. e-EROS has been designed and developed by chemists for chemists to enable the user to find the most suitable reagent or catalyst for performing particular reactions. A variety of searching options are available that mirror the way chemists think.
