[Chemistry] New chemistry reference works @ ISEL

We've received a couple of important new chemistry reference titles at ISEL:

Comprehensive Organic Functional Group Transformations II (Science Ref QD 262 .C534 2005, 7 vols.)
From the publisher description:
Comprehensive Organic Functional Group Transformations II (COFGT-II) will provide the first point of entry to the literature for all scientists interested in chemical transformations. Presenting the vast subject of organic synthesis in terms of the introduction and interconversion of all known functional groups, COFGT-II will provide a unique information source documenting all methods of efficiently performing a particular transformation.

Encyclopedia of Biological Chemistry (Science Ref QD 415.A25 E53 2004, 4 vols.)
A four-volume work including over 500 articles covering "virtually every aspect of biology for which we have 'mechanistic' information." Articles contain references to further reading. Intended for generalists with some background in chemistry and biology.
