Materials Science & Engineering: Property Data

A guide to the Materials Science & Engineering subject resources available from the University of Florida Libraries.

Off-Campus Access

Use of most electronic library resources (including e-books, e-journals, and databases) is restricted to affiliates of UF. For off-campus access to library-licensed e-publications and research databases, use either the UF VPN or the library proxy.

When you see Find@UF in your search results, click to access digital full-text material.

Instructions for both methods of access can be found at the link below.

Quick Internet Resources

Physical & Chemical Properties

Physical and chemical properties are first reported in the primary chemical literature (i.e. journal articles and patent applications). Later, book editors and database providers compile the data into tables and charts so one can easily find multiple properties for a single compound. The UF Libraries have many print and online data compilations where you can find property information.

Many of the resources listed on the Books & E-Books tab are also good places to search for property data.

Electronic Books & Databases

Print Sources

To locate books about a specific property, you can search by Subject Heading in the library catalog using the "property data" field. For example, to locate books with information about bond angles, search for "property data: bond angles".

NIST Databases

The National Institute of Standards and Technology have many databases of material properties available to the public. Some that may be of interest to chemists and materials scientists are highlighted below.
