Each of your named reactions are associated with an author (or a primary/first author).
The best places to look for your author is in the multi-year author indexes.
For older articles - 1907 - 1956 - try using one of the Decennial Indexes: 1907-1916, 1917-1926, 1927-1936, 1937-1946, and 1947-1956.
After 1956 these multi-year indexes are grouped, first by five year intervals: 1957-1961, 1962-1966 and thereafter by four year intervals: 1967-1971, 1972-1976, 1977-1981, 1982-1986, and 1987-1991.
It is also possible to use author indexes for either the year of publication or the following year (articles published towards the end of a year may show up in the index of the subsequent year).
The researcher/author M.S. Aslanova wrote an article in 1964 on the electrical surface conditions of glass fibers.
To locate Aslanova during this time period, use the Authors Index for 1962-1966 (the Authors A-B volume).
Under the heading Aslanova, M.S. you will find many articles on glass fibers ... but the fourth entry focuses specifically on "electrical surface conditions of glass fibers." The number/symbol associated with this entry is:
Now go to the long run of bound volumes labeled 61 (important - 61 refers to Volume 61 not the year 1961) and look for the bound volume that contains the entry 10414d. This entry will be in the bound volume of 61 labeled:
Oct.12 - Nov. 9
8869 - 12596
The numbers 8869 - 12596 are entry numbers. Since 10414 falls between 8869 and 12596 you know you have the right volume. Go to page/entry 10414 and then on this page (which is made up of the columns 10413 and 10414) go down the column to the level marked by a letter "d" (hence the item number 61:10414d) et Voila! The Aslanova citation and abstract is found.
You will find that the entry in Chemical Abstracts uses a journal abbreviation. To find the full name of the journal you can either: 1. Use the journal abbreviation finder at UBC - http://scieng.library.ubc.ca/coden/ 2. use the journal abbreviation guides found at the end of the last years of print Chemical Abstracts (late 1990s), 3. try googling the abbreviation (works in many cases).
Note: You will always use the entry number to find your Chemical Abstracts citation/abstract. However for earlier entries e.g. 1930s a superscript number was used instead of a letter. For later entries, each entry has its own unique entry number.
Chemical Abstracts live in the Bound Periodicals on the first floor (basement) of the Library.
The older (1907 - 1954) volumes are either brown or green.
The newer volumes (1955 - 1994) are red.
