The Merck Index An Encyclopedia of Chemicals, Drugs, and Biologicals, 15th Edition

The Merck Index is the definitive reference work for scientists and professionals looking for authoritative information on chemicals, drugs and biologicals. It has been the leading source of information on chemical compounds for generations of scientists and professionals, selling over one million copies since its publication in 1889.

The Merck Index contains over 10,000 monographs with information relating to compounds of significance in research, commerce and environmental impact. The 15th edition, available from RSC Publishing for the first time, is fully revised and updated and contains over 500 new monographs. Over 35% of the existing entries have been updated since the last edition, molecular weights have been recalculated with the latest IUPAC standards and there are revised periodic table and atomic weight tables.

The Merck Index now comes with FREE personal one-year access to the The Merck Index Online – a fully searchable database of over 11,500 monographs, including historic monographs not available in the print edition.

The Merck Index is an essential reference for all scholarly and professional chemists, biochemists, pharmacists and toxicologists and of interest to students, teachers, academic libraries, academic researchers, information professionals, solicitors, journalists and government agencies.

*The name THE MERCK INDEX is owned by Merck Sharp & Dohme Corp., a subsidiary of Merck & Co., Inc., Whitehouse Station, N.J., U.S.A., and is licensed to The Royal Society of Chemistry for use in the U.S.A. and Canada.

We use this book for lab work with essential oils, it’s a great reference and also gives you access to the online reference materials.
The last time I purchased the “Merck Index”, in addition to the one-year on-line access there was a computer disk included that permitted one also to print monographs from the computer. That was omitted in this edition.
