SciFinder recommended resource U.T. restricted
Online access to the Chemical Abstracts family of databases, including Chemical Abstracts (1907- ), Registry, CASREACT, and CHEMCATS, a chemical suppliers database. CA covers the technical literature of chemical and process technologies and related areas more comprehensively than any other tool, and is by far the most complete indexing source for chemical patents.

Engineering Index U.T. restricted
The primary general index for all engineering fields, it covers chemical engineering, though not as comprehensively as Chemical Abstracts. It's a good place to search for related topics such as equipment and machinery design, plant operations, and other applications.

Business Source Complete U.T. restricted
Indexing and full text of thousands of business and trade periodicals.
