* Although the Merck Index database mentions 2022 at the bottom of its home page, the content is primarily from the most recent print edition of the Merck Index (2013, 15th), which is why the Database Version example above uses that date and edition information.

** Merck Index database entries do not include page numbers, so this information cannot be included within quoted in-text citations.
