Link Spectral Database for Organic Compounds SDBS by Gutow, Jonathan H — last modified Jun 11, 2009 10:50 PM
This is a database of IR, NMR and Raman Spectra from the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology of Japan. Includes some inorganic compounds as well.
Link ChemSpider by Gutow, Jonathan H — last modified Mar 25, 2014 10:41 AM
A web site supported by the Royal Society of Chemistry that tries to locate chemically useful data on the web.
Link Sigma-Aldrich by Gutow, Jonathan H — last modified Jun 11, 2009 10:50 PM
You will need to create an account, but can then access many IRs and NMRs as well as general physical properties of substances they sell.
Link NCMS Solvent Database by Gutow, Jonathan H — last modified Jun 11, 2009 10:50 PM
A database of physical properties of many important industrial solvents (funded by DOD/DOE and EPA).
Link Computational Chemistry Comparison and Bench Mark Databases by Gutow, Jonathan H — last modified Feb 18, 2014 01:21 PM
NIST web site which has information useful for comparing computational methods. Includes geometries and some other molecular properties.
Link ChemFinder by Gutow, Jonathan H — last modified Jun 11, 2009 10:50 PM
An easy to use site that has general physical data. Often slow and access is very limited if you are not a subscriber.
