Welcome to the University Libraries' CHEM 228 class guide. This guide lists chemical information resources available through Texas A&M University Libraries for your CHEM 228 Pet Molecule Project. Please feel free to contact me if you need assistance finding chemical information for this project or any other. I'm over in the Chemistry Building a couple of days a week, but you can also email or call me too.
Additional chemical information sources can be found on the Chemistry Subject Guide.

If you are new to a topic, a brief definition or encyclopedia article may be the place to start.
Handbooks are a great place for property data, constants, or related material. In the case of the Merck Index, it will often provide a sentence or two about the first synthesis/isolation and use.
There are a few books that discuss chemicals in consumer products or impact/importance to society. Maybe not so relevant to your current project, but they provide something interesting history and background on a number of chemicals.
