The Solvents Database is an extensive compilation of over 110 properties of more than 1,100 solvents, allowing the user to search for information about specific solvents or specific properties. This work is intended to help formulators select ideal solvents, safety coordinators to protect workers, legislators and inspectors to define and implement technically correct public safeguards on solvent use, handling, and disposal. The database is also very useful for analytical chemists, environmental engineers, civil engineers, industrial engineers, industrial hygienists, workplace safety scientists, and medical/biological researchers in industry and academia.

The Solvents Database was developed to contain data vital in any solvent application in one comprehensive source. Total 1,141 solvents included in the database consist of about 70% solvents having generic chemical name and remaining are industrial solvents that are mixtures of component solvents. The solvents in the database belong to several groups including aliphatic and aromatic hydrocarbons, ethers, esters, aldehydes, ketones, alcohols, terpenes, amines, acids, CFC, HFC, HCFC, FC, other chlorine containing compounds, glycols, and polyhydric alcohols. In addition to the solvent applications, database is very useful tool for those who are interested in curatives (for example, a large collection of amines and polyhydric alcohols are included), common monomers also used as solvents, and low boiling liquids used in aerosols. The large number of the solvents and the data fields makes this database with almost 40,000 individual data the largest and the most comprehensive database on solvents.

The Solvents Database is divided into three sections: General Information, Physical & Chemical Properties, and Health & Safety. The database has 110 data fields. Each screen contains solvent name and its chemical structure. The data can be viewed on screen and printed in predefined format.
