Find the Citation for the Original Article

To find the citation for the original article where your named reaction was published, use one or more of the following print resources in Rod Library. Need help finding or using them? Contact your librarian, Anne Marie Gruber.

Wikipedia also does a pretty good job of including original article citations in articles about specific named reactions. Some named reactions might not have a Wikipedia article or you may need to scroll or search to find yours.

You can also try searching in SynArchive, a free database of organic chemistry syntheses. Or browse the alphabetical list of all syntheses included in SynArchive.

Note that some original articles are not in English!
