As a part of Web of Science Core Collection, Index Chemicus covers more than 100 of the world's leading organic chemistry journals, focusing on newly reported compounds. The database is text- and substructure-searchable including the complete bibliographic information, author abstract, reaction schematics, and individual chemical structures, the last two being attached directly to the literature record. It serves as both a compound database and a current awareness tool. It should always be searched simultaneously Current Chemical Reactions. Note that reaction schematics from CCR and compound structures from Index Chemicus are appended to the same literature record.
