The solvent database was developed to contain data vital in any solvent application in one comprehensive source. Total 1627 solvents included in the database consist about 60% solvents having generic chemical name and remaining are industrial solvents which 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 70,000 individual data the largest and the most comprehensive database on solvents.
The solvent database is divided into five sections: General, Physical, Health, Environmental, and Use. Information on the selected solvent can be accessed by clicking on any of the above tabs. The database has 140 data fields. The figures below show real screens available in the database. Each screen contains solvent name and its chemical structure. The data can be viewed on screen and printed in a predefined format.
