How It Works

The Chemistry Reference Resolver serves to quickly direct you to a publisher's webpage that contains the article you are looking for:

  1. You type-in the reference
  2. The Resolver determines whether it is a journal citation, a DOI, a Sigma-Aldrich chemical search, or something more esoteric
  3. Based on the input, it then redirects you to the publisher's webpage – straight to the paper (or its nearest approximation)

Many formats are supported including vaguely defined "lazy citations", such as "perkin1 2002 2733".
