Chemistry, as the American Chemical Society is wont to say, is the central science; central enough that many important resources in chemical information are among the most valuable -- and most costly -- in scientific information. Yet a significant number of resources highly useful to chemists are available free of charge on the Internet. Following are lists of some of the most useful, with commentary where appropriate.

There are a number of Internet sites which provide electronic collections of MSDS's for quick reference.
