Hazardous Substances Data Bank (HSDB) is a factual, non-bibliographic data bank focusing upon the toxicology of potentially hazardous chemicals. It is enhanced with data from such related areas as emergency handling procedures, environmental fate, human exposure, detection methods, and regulatory requirements. Data are derived from a core set of standard texts and monographs, government documents, technical reports and the primary journal literature. HSDB contains complete references for all data sources utilized. HSDB is fully peer reviewed by the Scientific Review Panel (SRP), a committee of experts drawn from the major subject disciplines within the data banks scope. HSDB is organized by individual chemical records, with over 4500 chemical records contained in the file. The file is being built, maintained, reviewed, and updated on the National Library of Medicines (NLM) Toxicology Data Network? (TOXNET) system, and has been supported, in part, by the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR).
