Toxic Substances Portal

Find information about toxic substances at the Center for Disease Control's ATSDR Toxic Substances Portal. ATSDR stands for the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry, and the registry lets you search for information by the name of the substance, synonyms, CAS numbers, or tradenames. You can also browse an alphabetical list, or choose a state from the map to see what toxins are found there.

The information page on each substance includes its chemical classification, how it affects people, a descriptive summary, and links to fact sheets designed for the general public as well as links to professional resources such as its toxicological profile and minimal risk levels.
