Merck Index – New Interface

August 24th, 2011

Purdue now has access to The Merck Index from a more user-friendly web interface. Access The Merck Index here.

The Merck Index contains descriptive information on 10,000+ chemicals, drugs (human and veterinary), and biologicals. Each entry lists synonyms for drug names (trade, chemical, generic, and research codes), CAS Registry Numbers, physical data, patent information, uses, toxicity, and bibliographic citations on synthesis, pharmacology, and toxicology. Can search by name, structure, CAS # and more.
