The Merck Index 14th Edition
Latest version of the essential reference book includes searchable CD, and a new upgrade offers extensive structure search capabilities
With more than one million copies sold, The Merck Index has been the primary reference source for generations of professionals looking for precise, comprehensive information on chemicals, drugs and biologicals. The latest 14th Edition of this essential reference work for chemists, biochemists, pharmacists and related professionals, includes with the book, for the first time, a text-searchable CD-ROM, which contains all the data in the book and more. The CD contains ChemFinder, the industry-leading scientific search engine from CambridgeSoft Corporation (Cambridge, Massachusetts) that allows data to be searched by keywords, references and numerical properties.
The Merck Index is a one-volume encyclopaedia of chemicals, drugs and biologicals that contains more than 10,000 monographs, 32 supplemental tables, 450 Organic Name Reactions and more. This 14th Edition has been extensively revised to ensure its accuracy and enhance its readability with many new features as well as thousands of new references, trademarks and uses, plus an expanded – and timely – focus on “Green Chemistry” and compounds of environmental significance. In addition to revisions and updating, enhancements include embedding the Chemical Abstracts Registry Numbers for title and derivative compounds within the monographs.
CambridgeSoft, provider of previous electronic editions of The Merck Index, has made available The Merck Index 14th Edition/Chemists, an upgrade that provides the unique, powerful capability to search the CD to find molecules by fragment, sub-structures or full structures, on the basis of either exact matching or similarity. Structure searching is precise and convenient and includes tautomeric full and sub-structure searching. You can search for structures containing isotopic labels, or tetrahedral stereocenters, or other characteristics.
The Merck Index 14th Edition/Chemists, which is supplied by Adept Scientific (Letchworth, Herts.), provides the ability to search for alternative groups, either in atom labels such as “(OH,H,CONH2,Me)” or drawn using the R-Group features of ChemDraw (CambridgeSoft’s renowned structure drawing software, also available from Adept Scientific). Link nodes are supported, so you can search for variable-length rings and chains such as “(-CH2)6-8-” or multi-connected variables (“-R-“). You can now search for any type of single atom (“A, Q, X, M”) or any group (“R”).
Also included is an Personal Internet Edition subscription that provides immediate access to the data on the CD as well as updates. Together, the CD and the Internet Edition contain all the contents of the printed 14th edition plus nearly 1,000 monographs archived from previous editions.
With offices in the UK, USA, Germany and throughout the Nordic region, Adept Scientific is one of the world’s leading suppliers of software and hardware products for research, scientific, engineering and technical applications on desktop computers.

“While skeptical at first, now having switched to Origin I know it will remain my graphing software of choice. Not only does it have an intuitive user interface, but it also has the power to quickly and efficiently complete all of my graphing needs. Origin is the best graphing software available. Period.”Mr. Kevin Clark, University of Illinois Urbana/Champaign
Yet again Origin and OriginPro upholds its foremost status as the best purposeful and all-embracing data analysis and graphing software on the market. Although other software packages exist, few are as straightforward to use, flexible, and high-quality when it comes to performing challenging data analysis or creating publication superior graphs.Keith J. Stevenson, Professor of Chemistry, The University of Texas at Austin
