IEEE Xplore
Journals and conference proceedings from IEEE and IET, IEEE standards, and IEEE ebooks. IEEE Xplore will be useful for any materials applications in electrical engineering, computer science and engineering, and electronics.

From ACS, access to Chemical Abstracts and related chemistry resources. You'll have to set up a SciFinder account using your email address.

Web of Science
Provides seamless access to Science Citation Index Expanded, Social Science Citation Index, and Arts & Humanities Citation Index. Over 10,000 journals are indexed in this multidisciplinary database. 1991 to present.

If you need articles about chemical prices, production, chemical companies or industries, try these databases:

You can also search electronic journal collections that include chemical engineering journals. Be aware that if you search one of these ejournal collections you will only be searching journals from one publisher. Use one of the databases listed above to search a broad selection of journals from many publishers.
