A free tool to search by Chemical Name and CAS Number
ESdat Online Chemistry Search
A great resource for quickly and easily searching Chemical Names and their CAS numbers is now available at ESdat Online.
Figure 1: Showing a search for a Chemical Name
The free tool is used to access thousands of CAS numbers and Chemical Names in a searchable format.
Chemicals can be searched either by the chemical name, e.g. Lead, or by their CAS number e.g. 1335-32-6. Where no CAS number exists for a chemical an ESDat ChemCode is available. The searchable database includes over 5500 chemical names and CAS numbers.
For each chemical name and CAS code, links to further resources are available. These include:
- NIST. National Institute of Standards and Technology Standard Reference Database
- Scorecard data for information on pollutant problems and toxic chemicals
- USEPA IRIS. The United States Environmental Protection Agency Integrated Risk Information System (IRIS)
- IPCS INCHEM. International Programme on Chemical Safety (IPCS) and the Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety (CCOHS)
