It is essential for those involved in the production and distribution of specialty chemicals to have ready access to a reference that contains integrated information on these chemicals, their properties, functional and application market sectors, manufacturers and distributors.

Specialty Chemicals has been extensively revised and expanded and now contains approximately 18,000 monographs on this group of chemicals with 70,000 cross-referenced chemical synonyms, and more than 60,000 trade name equivalents.

Data from technical specification sheets, brochures, and MSDS from over 4,400 chemical manufacturers and their branches are collected, processed, and updated on a continuous basis.

This research has yielded comprehensive profiles on the generic chemicals contained in this reference and are currently used in a variety of formulated end products.

Specialty Chemicals profiles these chemicals, lists and fully cross-references their chemical and trade name synonyms, and presents full contact information for their generic and trade name chemical manufacturers (including email and internet addresses).


Specialty Chemical Monographs contains more than 18,000 specialty chemical entries.
Each entry contains information including the following categories:

  • CAS (Chemical Abstract Service)
  • EINECS/ELINCS (European Inventory of Existing Commercial Chemical Substances/European List of Notified Chemical Substances)
  • UN/DOT reference numbers
  • classification
  • definition
  • chemical synonyms
  • trade name synonyms (including manufacturers)
  • empirical and molecular formulas
  • properties
  • toxicology
  • precautions
  • storage
  • uses
  • use level
  • regulatory details
  • manufacturers and distributors
All generic chemical synonyms and trade name synonyms are cross-referenced back to the main entry.

Function/Application Index is a powerful tool for locating chemicals based on functions and industrial application areas.

By searching for functional key words such as catalyst, moisture scavenger, plasticizer or application key words, such as inks, coatings, elastomers, thermoplastic resins, the user is directed to the appropriate specialty chemical monographs.

Manufacturers Directory contains detailed contact information for the more than 4400 manufacturers of the trade name products and generic chemicals that are referenced in this source book.

Wherever possible, telephone, telefax, toll-free 800 numbers, Email and Internet addresses, and complete mailing addresses are included for each manufacturer.
