My Knovel: Knovel, personalised to you

My Knovel: Knovel, personalised to you

Knovel is a truly original novel approach to presenting scientific and engineering information, designed to supply data for real world problems and experiments.  Offering a choice between standard search and an interactive matrix of search criteria that return physico-chemical data, formulae, information, and more for the physical sciences, it draws from a large collection of authoritative reference sources and is arguably the best place to start looking for the physical and engineering properties of materials.

You can search across all of Knovel or browse individual reference works like individual ebooks, search by physico-chemical properties of materials, use an interactive equation editor to solve problems faster, convert units, look up reference data for elements and periodic table trends, or just check out the thermodynamic properties of steam and water.
