Welcome to the redesigned and revamped Hazardous Chemicals Database

Most of the content has not changed from the previous version, though there have been a few updates as and when they have been spotted,  but the layout is entirely new.

Finding a chemical

There are two easy ways to do this and one difficult one.

The two easy ways are either to use the search button at the top right or to go to the Chemical Index page which is a long list of all the chemicals in alphabetical order (there will be some internal navigation put in there as soon as we can)

The hard way is simply to look for it from one of the pages that are tiled (in alphabetical order) at the bottom of this page.

Layout

The new layout has combined the two pages of the previous website (Data and Remedial Measures and Uses and Control Measures)  into one page for each group of chemicals. For each one there is (or will be) a brief introductory section and then 4 tabs to access the data:

Classification and labelling 

This section describes the hazards and has the details of the classification and labels needed (for the pure substance)

Handling and emergency 

This section contains the rest of the old D&RM pages with advice on Incompatibility, Storage, Handling, Disposal and Remedial Measures – it also contains the ‘arrows’ describing the effect of dilution on the hazards.

Chemical data 

This section contains a table with the chemical data (that used to be near the top of the D&RM page before). GFM, mp, bp, flashpoint, WEL etc.

Uses 

This contains all the information on the old Uses and Remedial Measures pages: interactive calculators for making solutions, suggestions for experiments and suggested age guidance etc.
