Reference Works

Thieme-Chemistry offers the following reference works:



Science of Synthesis


Science of Synthesis is a reference work that has been designed to address the chemistry information needs of the organic synthetic chemist and, more specifically, to help all those involved in designing organic synthetic routes, whether for research purposes or teaching and/or learning, by providing trusted and reliable information on the best synthetic methods available. Science of Synthesis is the largest collection of evaluated organic synthetic methods available worldwide.











Houben-Weyl is the classic reference work that provides immediate access to approximately 146 000 experimental procedures, 580 000 target compounds, and 700 000 references covering the whole field of synthetic organic chemistry dating back to 1909.












Pharmaceutical Substances


Pharmaceutical Substances is designed to be a complete reference guide to every pharmaceutical compound of significance. It provides a compendium of some 2500 active pharmaceutical ingredients (API's) of interest to the chemical and pharmaceutical industries.
