Please note: One-time registration for university libraries and governmental organizations
To minimize the bureaucratically expenditure a one-time registration for university libraries and governmental organizations is possible from now on. However, we do charge a one time registration fee of 950 EURO for such institutions to help maintain this non-profit service to the scientific community. So, a one-off expense, which includes the latest issue of the “UV/Vis+ Spectra Data Base” CD-ROM series, will provide your institution permanent access to this fast growing database via IP-number. Please note that the database is more than 16 years on-line and in permanent progress, additional spectra/datasheets will be added continuously. For more information please contact our helpdesk.
