The Merck Index

Share this on social media:

The Merck Index is joining the publishing portfolio of the Royal Society of Chemistry.

This iconic reference book provides comprehensive information on chemicals, drugs and biologicals and has a 120-year history.

The RSC says that it plans significant development of The Merck Index online, and will continue to develop and update The Merck Index to provide a valuable, trusted and relevant resource for scientists and researchers.

In the agreement with Merck, the Royal Society of Chemistry will take over publication by launching the 15th edition, due out in April. The new edition is said to have been extensively revised and updated.
