Summaries about hazardous substances developed by the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry's Division of Toxicology. Each fact sheet answers the most frequently asked questions about exposure to hazardous substances found around hazardous waste sites and the effects of exposure on human health.
This Information Analysis Center acquires, analyzes, and disseminates CBD information. This includes chemical and physical properties of CBD materials, chemical identification, decontamination, homeland security, environmental effects, medical effects and treatment, toxicology, warning and identification, nuclear, biological and chemical survivability, etc. *Access to their database is available free to government agencies after registering. *IACs are DoD sponsored but charge for some services.
HSDB focuses on the toxicology of potentially hazardous chemicals. It is enhanced with information on human exposure, industrial hygiene, emergency handling procedures, environmental fate, regulatory requirements, and related areas.
An occupational health database designed for health and safety professionals and for consumers seeking information about the health effects of exposure to chemicals at work. Haz-Map links jobs and hazardous tasks with occupational diseases and their symptoms.
Contains data in support of human health risk assessment. It is compiled by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and contains over 500 chemical records. IRIS data, focuses on hazard identification and dose-response assessment, and includes key data on EPA carcinogen classifications, unit risks, slope factors, oral reference doses, and inhalation reference concentrations.

Some JANNAF Interagency Propulsion Committee reports are available from DTIC. Our library and Reports Vault owns some reports, and many are available from DTIC. *IACs are DoD sponsored but charge for some services.
Over 5,100 public domain technical papers presented at Joint Army-Navy-NASA-Air Force conferences since 1974. These public papers cover combustion science, propulsion system safety and hazards, environmental protection, toxicology, materials technology, nondestructive evaluation, and energetic materials research.

A bibliographic database covering toxicology. Covers the biochemical, pharmacological, physiological, and toxicological effects of drugs and other chemicals. It contains more than 3 million citations and includes CAS Registry Numbers.
TOXMAP show where hazardous chemicals are released on-site into the air, water, and ground; identifies releasing facilities; shows chemical release trends; and provides information/links from these resources. Covers the United States and via maps allows users to visually explore data from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)'s Toxics Release Inventory
