Chemistry Journals not indexed by Medline v.1.0

It seems like every year I have to repeat to people that the simple free and easy Pubmed is not the repository of all science. Fine for a quick search if you work in the chemistry/biology space but nowhere near comprehensive.  For chemistry of course Scifinder is the most comprehensive but of course is the very opposite of free.

So I wanted to get an idea of how bad Pubmeds coverage of chemistry journals is. I needed a list damn it, and the internet should be the place to go, shouldn’t it?  Well I couldn’t find a good list so I had to make my own. Fortunately the NLM makes it possible to search by journal name and each entry will provide you with a yes/no answer as to whether its currently being indexed for Medline. This presumably doesn’t mean it hasn’t been indexed in the past. Journal names change too which clouds the issue a bit.  For example:

Organic letters
American Chemical Society.
NLM Title Abbreviation: Org Lett
ISSN:1523-7060 (Print) ; 1523-7052 (Electronic) ; 1523-7052 (Linking)
Washington, DC : American Chemical Society, c1999-
Currently indexed for MEDLINE
NLM ID: 100890393 [Serial]

So I went ahead and started searching for a few journals, so in no particular order, here’s what I found. Errors and particularly omissions are all mine, feel free to add your favourite chemistry journal in the comments.
