The major utility and/or benefit of this compilation will be derived from a chemical class by chemical class comparative analysis of individual assay performance. The data base will serve as a resource for hazard evaluation of chemicals through structural correlations and biological end points and associated end points such as carcinogenicity. An example analysis is presented using chemical Class 5 (alkyl sulfates sulfoxides, sulfones, sulfonates, organic sulfur compounds not otherwise classified) and includes the four components.
