Call Number: T55.3.H3 L49 2008
Contains Safety Profiles, synonyms, physical properties, standards, and recommendations of government agencies for approximately 5,000 chemicals deemed both important and potentially hazardous by the international scientific community. Substances were chosen on the basis of meeting a variety of criteria, including:having an OSHA standard or an ACGIH TLV, being listed by the International Agency for Research on Cancer Groups or on the NTP Ninth Report on Carcinogens, having a German Research Society’s Mak or Bat listing, or having especially dangerous toxic, reactive, or fire properties.
The data for each entry is taken from the master file of Dangerous Properties of Industrial Materials (DPIM). Updated to include the latest information from a variety of international databases and organizations, while deleting entries that have proven to be the least pertinent to practitioners (the fourth edition contained 6,000 chemicals). Includes synonym, DOT number, and CAS registry number indexes
