Analytical Abstracts U.T. restricted
This search tool covers the literature of analytical chemistry since 1980 and is searchable by analyte and matrix as well as by conventional keyword and bibliographic data.

Google Scholar
Google's scholarly literature search engine is massive (although there isn't a way to know what it actually covers and what it doesn't), but it lacks the powerful features to focus and manipulate results that you can use in tools such as SciFinder and Web of Science. One advantage is does have over other abstracting services is that it indexes the full text of most documents. Don't rely on GS for comprehensive research. Off-campus UT-Austin users should use this proxied link to have access to licensed full text.
