Chemical Structure Images Added to HSDB

The National Library of Medicine (NLM) Division of Specialized Information Services (SIS) has added chemical structure images from the NLM ChemIDplus database to Hazardous Substances Databank (HSDB) records. The chemical structures can be viewed in the HSDB record header with the chemical name and registry number. Users can save the chemical structure as a .png file (right click). It is not available via the HSDB document download feature.

The OEHHA PubMed URL displays links to records in PubMed that also have a HSDB record (see below). You can access the OEHHA PubMed URL from the OEHHA services home page by scrolling down to Key Resources.

These structures are also available in:

· Chemical Carcinogenesis Research Information System (CCRIS): Carcinogenicity, mutagenicity, tumor promotion, and tumor inhibition data from the National Cancer Institute (NCI)

· Comparative Toxicogenomics Database (CTD) – Molecular mechanisms by which environmental chemicals affect human disease

· GENETOX: Peer-reviewed mutagenicity test data from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)

· Integrated Risk Information System (IRIS): Data from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) supporting human health risk assessment and focusing on hazard identification and dose-response assessment 

· International Toxicity Estimates for Risk (ITER): Chemical risk information from authoritative groups worldwide
