Built on a core of 10,000 short chemical and medical descriptions of drugs and other medicinally important inorganic and organic compounds and natural mixtures, The Merck Index has no competition as a reference book of its kind. The descriptions ("monographs") include "trivial" (common or generic) names, other chemical names (including the Chemical Abstracts index name), and tradenames. Formulas are followed by molecular weights and percentage compositions. About two fifths of the entries include structural ideographs. Concise descriptions of chemical properties (including solubilities) and terse notes on preparation methods (with references) are followed by brief comments on toxicity and medical uses
