Search Petroleum Substances

The link above allows the user to search for information on an individual substance. The information is organized around the unique Chemical Abstract Services (CAS) number for each substance. The INSTRUCTION page provides details on how to search for a substance and what information may be available in this database.

Information on petroleum substances can also be organized and evaluated according to product categories. Use of categories facilitates coordination of efforts to summarize existing data and develop new data which will be appropriate for hazard characterization worldwide and therefore, avoid unnecessary duplication of testing. This approach was used for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) High Production Volume Chemical (HPV) challenge program. Information on HPV substances organized by product categories can be found at http://www.petroleumhpv.org
