Information provided includes prices.

ChemACX provides rapid ordering information for over 450,000 unique chemical substances (13,375 new!), over 1,082,000 products, and is updated quarterly. The current update has seen 57% of its products updated and 60% of its individual Skus updated.

ChemINDEX and NCI: Personal Internet Edition
ChemINDEX is a directory of over 75,000 unique chemical substances, listing chemical structure, 3D structure, registry numbers, synonyms, physical properties, and links to Internet sources of further information. ChemINDEX also provides additional access to the NCI database with integrated AIDS and Human Tumor Cell Line screening results. The internet edition also has links to ChemACX and The Merck Index.
The Merck Index 14.0 Personal Internet Edition
With more than one million copies sold, The Merck Index has been THE go-to reference for generations of professionals looking for precise, comprehensive information on chemicals, drugs, and biologicals. This is the newest edition of the standard reference for chemists, biochemists, pharmacists, and related professionals.

The Merck Index 14th Edition has been extensively revised to ensure its accuracy and enhance its readability with many new features. The Merck Index is a one-volume encyclopedia of chemicals, drugs and biologicals that contains more than 10,000 monographs, 32 supplemental tables and 450 Organic Name Reactions. Nearly 4,000 of the entries cover drugs and pharmaceuticals, 2,000 describe common organic chemicals and laboratory reagents, another 2,000 cover naturally occurring substances and plants, 1,000 focus on the elements and on inorganic chemicals, and approximately 1,000 pertain to compounds of agricultural significance. Each monograph in this authoritative reference source is a concise description of a single substance or a small group of closely related compounds. In addition, there are more than 700 new and completely revised monographs, thousands of new references, trademarks and uses added to previous edition’s monographs.
