Current Alzheimer Research

A good multidisciplinary resource for this area of research.


New on ejournals@cambridge A-Z : Current Alzheimer Research.


From the IngentaConnect website for the journal:

Current Alzheimer Research publishes peer-reviewed frontier review and research articles on all areas of Alzheimer’s disease. This multidisciplinary journal will help in understanding the neurobiology, genetics, pathogenesis, and treatment strategies of Alzheimer’s disease. The journal publishes objective reviews written by experts and leaders actively engaged in research using cellular, molecular, and animal models. The journal also covers original articles on recent research in fast emerging areas of molecular diagnostics, brain imaging, drug development and discovery, and clinical aspects of Alzheimer’s disease.

“The journal is essential reading for researchers, educators and physicians with interest in age-related dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. Current Alzheimer Research provides a comprehensive ‘bird’s-eye view’ of the current state of Alzheimer’s research for neuroscientists, clinicians, health science planners, granting, caregivers and families of this devastating disease.”

A reminder that the CRC Handbook of Chemistry and Physics, 95th ed., 2014-15, is available online as an ebook, on- and off-campus|eresources|74068.

The Handbook is an authoratitive resource consisting of tables of data and current international recommendations on nomenclature, symbols, and units, and is useful not just for the physical sciences, but also for the related disciplines of biology, geology, and environmental science. Content includes physical property data and mathematical formulas.

The latest 95th ed. includes 22 new tables and major updates and expansions, details are given here:

You can search the Handbook by chemical structure: simply download the intuitive Marvin Sketch Java Applet from ChemAxon and then draw your structure query. Search over 10,000 compounds.

This online reference work is subscribed to on an annual basis. Please let me have your feedback at if you wish for us to continue subscribing to this as an ebook, and whether you prefer to use the printed or online version.

Supramolecular Chemistry

This was originally recommended by a member of the Department of Chemistry – so it does pay off!


New on ejournals@cambridge A-Z : Supramolecular Chemistry.


From the Taylor & Francis website for the journal:

“From crown ethers to calixarenes, supramolecular modelling studies to the modification and assembly of artificial DNA, as well as inorganic-based systems, we interpret supramolecular chemistry in the broadest sense.”

The journal also offers book reviews and editorials as well as articles.

Now available to the University of Cambridge electronically from volume 1 (1992) to present.

Access Supramolecular Chemistry via the ejournals@cambridge A-Z or at this link.

PatentPak now available in SciFinder


Do you spend a lot of time rounding up and pinpointing chemistry in patents? Save time by using PatentPak, a new patent workflow solution available in SciFinder.

PatentPak features include:

  1. Full-text patents – access searchable, full-text patent documents directly and securely from major worldwide patent offices
  2. Patent families – connect directly to these in their original language
  3. Substance page numbers – navigate directly to the page where these appear in the patent
  4. Interactive document viewer – searchable, interactive patents that also let you directly launch new SciFinder searches (coming soon)

Registered SciFinder users are entitled to five free samples of PatentPak content.

When you click on the PatentPak icon (that will appear in your search results) you can immediately view the full text patent document for that reference. A pop-up box tracks how many free samples are still available. If you click on the icon after all five free samples have been used, you can still link to more information about PatentPak.

The substance location information feature within the SciFinder patent display is not included in the complementary access although availability is noted in the display.
