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 mouse click). It is not available via the HSDB document download feature.
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
- Genetic Toxicology Data Bank (GENE-TOX): 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
