Pistoia Alliance Chemical Safety Library

The use of dangerous chemicals in the laboratory puts researchers at increased risk of injury - even death. To protect from these risks, it is critical that hazardous reaction incident information is shared widely, across the global research community.

The Pistoia Alliance Chemical Safety Library (CSL) is a new open-access platform that streamlines access to hazardous reaction information crowd-sourced from academic, industry and government institutions around the world. Developed and hosted by CAS, the CSL supports laboratory safety by providing tools to:

  • Search for hazardous reaction information by CAS Registry Number®, chemical name, SMILES and more.
  • Contribute new hazardous reaction incident information to the library.
  • Download aggregated information to integrate with internal workflows and knowledge bases.
