    The words must be entered in the correct order, e.g. "paracare paracetamol" rather than "paracetamol paracare" or results may not be found.

    A standard search will return:

    Direct substance name matches

    Synonym matches

    The results of a search will be displayed under the purple area; to view the information page for any results, simply click the title of the selected substance.

  • If you know the CAS number of a chemical, simply enter the CAS number in the search box. While toxinz™ contains information about numerous chemicals, it is not a comprehensive chemical database, so many CAS numbers will not have a corresponding document.

    Example: search for Acetone using the CAS Number 67-64-1
