About this book

This book contains information about more than 20,000 chemicals. The book covers chemicals on the US government's list and chemicals regulated by the Environmental Protection Agency, Food and Drug Administration, Department of Agriculture, Department of Transportation, International Trade Commission and Occupational Safety and Health Administration. Other chemicals listed include those found in the Hazardous Substances Data Bank, the Toxic Substances Control Act Test Submissions (TSCATS) database, and the Environmental Fate Databases. This book also provides critical information on the identity of chemicals and allows cross-referencing between the diverse nomenclatures used by the various scientific disciplines that deal with chemicals. In addition, over half the discrete chemicals in this book have SMILES structural notations to further assist in identifying the compound. The book should be useful to chemical manufacturers; industrial health and safety officers; persons responsible for disposal of chemicals; persons responsible and interested in Community Right to Know and Workers Right to Know programs; individuals responsible for ordering and receiving chemicals; persons maintaining public and academic libraries; and all persons working around chemicals or concerned with chemicals in the environment, including environmental engineers, toxicologists, industrial hygienists, and chemists.
