World chemical industry produces today more than 70,000 different products. The variety of products increases from day to day. Chemicals are used to produce a wide variety of consumer goods, such as detergents, plastic ware, fragnances, fabric, paints, etc. Modern agriculture, motor-car construction, textile, food, pharmaceutical and other industries are impossible without chemical inputs also. Most of products are used in manufacture of other items, although a smaller number are applied directly by consumers. The chemical industry itself consumes more than quarter of its own output as an intermediates.
CHEMINDUSTRY.RU presents freely accessible hand-book on industrial chemicals, reagents and other chemical products. Description of individual compound contain a structural formula (for organic substances), synonyms of chemical name, CAS registry number, physical constants (molecular weight, melting and boiling points, density, refractive index, acidity and so on). Almost articles devoted to certain substance consist of three parts:
Appearance of compound, its solubility in water and organic solvents, chemical properties and characteristic reactions; health, safety/hazard and handling precautions.
Standard methods of synthesis in industry.
Main application areas.
How to find substance or chemical product in catalogue?
Search function is useful if you know systematic name, acronym, one of commonly used name or CAS registry number of compound.
Almost chemicals and reagents are intended exclusively for industrial or laboratory applications. It is therefore assumed that the user will have a sufficient experience and training to take the necessary precautions when handling chemicals. Remember that the danger is frequently underestimated. Incorrect handling chemicals may cause health hazard, environment pollution, etc.
