Subscription Services for SDS & Chemical Safety Databases

OCRS subscribes to ChemWatch, which is an online service that provides access to SDS and additional Chemical Safety Databases.  These resources can only be accessed through the campus network.  If you are off campus, you will need to login through the VU VPN or the VUMC VPN.


The ChemWatch chemical database may be the world's largest supplier of independently researched SDS. 


In addition to information about pure chemical substances, ChemWatch contains information about 75,000 common mixtures, infectious  substances and most clinical drugs.  The database may also be searched using chemical drawings to find a specific chemical or families of related chemicals.

If you have any problems accessing the ChemWatch subscription databases, please e-mail Kevin Warren or call 322-0925.
