WASHINGTON — The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is making it easier to find chemical information online.
EPA has released a database, called ToxRefDB, which allows the interested public to search and download thousands of toxicity testing results on hundreds of chemicals.
ToxRefDB provides detailed chemical toxicity data in an accessible format. It is a part of ACToR (Aggregated Computational Toxicology Resource), an online data warehouse that collects data from about 500 public sources on tens of thousands of environmentally relevant chemicals, including several hundred in ToxRefDB.
Those interested in chemical toxicity can query a specific chemical and find all available public hazard, exposure, and risk-assessment data. Click here for more information on the database.
