ACS Journal Archive

research The American Chemical Society journal archives (ACS Legacy Archives) continues to be an important source of research information for chemists worldwide. Supporting Information is often essential to understanding the relevance and context of the original research article. ACS recently completed the digital conversion of this additional material, meaning 40,000 original research articles now have a Supporting Info link for easy access to 800,000 pages of tabular data, illustrations and diagrams, spectroscopic and crystallographic results, detailed experimental procedures, software programming code, biological test data, mathematical derivations and more.

The Library provides full access to the ACS Legacy Archive, covering nearly half a million original research articles published in ACS journals between the years 1879 and 1995. Click here to explore further, or use the Databases tab on the Library website to find the ACS Journal Archive link.

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.
