Among the extensive collection of the newly available digital information are many noteworthy examples of data that supported published scientific breakthroughs, such as:
- J. Am. Chem. Soc.– Absolute configuration correlations for a study on enantiomeric purity, as reported by Sharpless and coworkers in 1981.
- Langmuir– Experimental details from a study of self assembly of dialkyl sulfides published by Whitesides and coworkers in 1988.
- Macromolecules– Structure factors for a crystal structure determination of poly (ethylene oxide) as revealed by Takahashi and Tadokoro in 1973.
- J. Phys. Chem.– Details on the data evaluation for a study by Pitzer and Mayorga on activity and osmotic coefficients for strong electrolytes, as published in 1973.
