  • Anti-cancer Agent Mechanism Database
    • The Anti-cancer Agent Mechanism Database is a set of 122 compounds with anti-cancer activity and a reasonably well known mechanism of action.
  • Carcinogenic Potency Database (CPDB)
    • The Carcinogenic Potency Database, developed at the University of California, Berkeley, and Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory, provides standardized analyses of the results of 6540 chronic, long-term animal cancer tests that have been conducted since the 1950's and reported in the general published literature or by the National Cancer Institute and the National Toxicology Program.
  • ChemSpider
    • ChemSpider is a free chemical structure database providing fast text and structure search access to over 26 million structures from hundreds of data sources.
  • IARC Monographs Database on Carcinogenic Risks to Humans
    • The IARC Monographs series publishes authoritative independent assessments by international experts on the carcinogenic risks posed to humans by a variety of agents, mixtures and exposures. Since its inception in 1972, the series has reviewed more than 860 agents, and IARC Monographs have become well-known for their thoroughness, accuracy and integrity.
  • Material Safety Data Sheets
    • A MSDS (Material Safety Data Sheet) is designed to provide both workers and emergency personnel with the proper procedures for handling or working with a particular substance.
  • PubChem
    • PubChem provides information on the biological activities of small molecules; includes substance information, compound structures, and BioActivity data in three primary databases, Pcsubstance, Pccompound, and PCBioAssay, respectively.
  • Reaxys
    • Reaxys is a web-based interfacechemistry workflow tool. It allows searching by substances with fully searchable chemical structures. Substance records show physical, chemical and bioactivity data – including pharmacodynamics and (eco-)toxicology data from different publications. It also allows searching by single and multi-step reactions, many include reaction procedure texts. In addition citations that are indexed from the primary organic, inorganic and organomatellic chemistry journal literature going back to 1771 and patent literature may also be searched.
  • SciFinder Scholar - Chemical Abstracts Service
    • 1907 - present. This resource requires special client software. For more information, visit the SciFinder Scholar Information Page. This database provides integrated access to Chemical Abstracts (covering the worldwide chemical literature, including patents), MEDLINE, Registry (substance records, with chemical structures and names), and CASreact (organic reactions), CHEMCATS & CHEMLIST. The graphical user interface allows searching by topic, author, chemical identification terms (names, formulas, registry numbers), and chemical structures.
    • TOXNET (TOXicology Data NETwork) is a cluster of databases covering toxicology, hazardous chemicals, environmental health and related areas. It is managed by the Toxicology and Environmental Health Information Program (TEHIP) in the Division of Specialized Information Services (SIS) of the National Library of Medicine (NLM).
