Safety Data Sheets (formerly called Material Safety Data Sheets) and other relevant chemical data are available on the Web. UC Libraries make Internet access available to everyone.

UC's main SDS sources are:

ChemWatch GoldFFX Database

ChemWatch is the primary SDS source at UC. ChemWatch automatically recognizes a UC-affiliated computer.

RightAnswer (formerly Micromedex) is an additional source of safety information, including the RTECS© Registry. Registration required.

SDSs are an important source of health and safety information, but they should not be the only tool used to evaluate chemical hazards. Gather chemical hazard information from a variety of sources.
