(1) Review Database
Synthesis Reviews – A database of 18,094 articles and books of interest to synthetic chemists (coverage 1970 to the middle of 2004) compiled by P. Kocienski and co-workers. The database is provided free to subscribers of Synthesis (downloadable from UCI). Synthesis Reviews is best imported into EndNote, although it could be searched with any word processing program. The database is not copy-protected and “copies can be freely circulated.”
