Its closest competitors are either outdated or provide fewer entries. The quantity of the entries is enhanced by references to synonyms or archaic terms, and to IUPAC nomenclature. The CD-ROM employs a simple user interface, and comes with an easily-understandable user's manual. Minimum technical specifications are 2 MB RAM (4 MB recommended), a minimum of 1 MB of hard disk space, and Windows 3.1 or higher. It makes effective use of Windows features such as graphical command buttons, and offers flexible search options and truncation of search terms. [ho/sbd]
