    … an excellent product … I have done comparison searches and find unique references in the CCD not found in others … a must-have product since it covers organic, inorganic, and organometallic compounds as well as natural products, analytical reagents, and pharmacological agents … [it] provides a wider variety of references for the compounds it indexes than Beilstein/Gmelin or SciFinder Scholar.

    —Dana L. Roth, Caltech Library System

    Praise for the Dictionary of Natural Products:

    If you are interested in natural products, you will want access to this dictionary.

    —Natural Product Reports

    As an owner and daily user of the CD-ROM version of the Dictionary of Natural Products, I am very impressed by the amount of information given for each compound. Extremely easy to install, the flexibility of the CD-ROM version makes it an indispensable tool for research on natural products.

    —Dr. Olov Sterner, University of Lund, Sweden

    The way it’s presented is just perfect … it has saved me literally days of work since we started subscribing … it’s got to the stage where I walk into the library and they don’t even ask what I want. They just say ‘give him the green disc.’

    —Dr. Alan Freyer, Smithkline Beecham

    … an exceptionally well-done compendium that will be often used and save many hours in the library; it should be given top priority for purchase.

    —M.E. Kuehne, University of Vermont

    Praise for the Dictionary of Organic Compounds:

    … excellent … the new volumes are more useful than ever to chemists, and they are sure to play a unique role in helping researchers …

    —E.J. Corey, Harvard University

    …should be a fixture in the main library of most colleges and industrial companies with chemical research groups.

    —A.I. Meyers, University of Colorado

    Praise for the Dictionary of Inorganic Compounds:

    … recommended … a unique, extensive compilation …
