   "The solvent database was developed to contain data vital in any
    solvent application in one comprehensive source. Total 1141
    solvents included in the database consist about 70% solvents
    having generic chemical name and remaining are industrial
    solvents which are mixtures of component solvents. The solvents
    in the database belong to several groups including aliphatic and
    aromatic hydrocarbons, ethers, esters, aldehydes, ketones,
    alcohols, terpenes, amines, acids, CFC, HFC, HCFC, FC, other
    chlorine containing compounds, glycols, and polyhydric alcohols.
    In addition to the solvent applications, database is very useful
    tool for those who are interested in curatives (for example, a
    large collection of amines and polyhydric alcohols are
    included), common monomers also used as solvents, and low
    boiling liquids used in aerosols. The large number of the
    solvents and the data fields makes this database with almost
    40,000 individual data the largest and the most comprehensive
    database on solvents.

   "The solvent database is divided into three sections: General
    information, Physical and chemical properties, and Health &
    safety. Information on the selected solvent can be accessed by
    clicking on any of the above tabs. The database has 110 data
    fields.  The figures shown below real screens available. Each
    screen contains solvent name and its chemical structure.  The
    data can be viewed on screen and printed in predefined format.

    This book was written by a group of experts on various subjects
    of solvents' use, the fundamental principles governing their
    application, effect on health and environment, residual solvents
    in products, their concentration in industrial environments,
    current regulations, safer substitutes, non-emitting
    technologies of use, contamination cleanup, personal protection,
    and the most modern trends in future technology. The authors,
    who are the members of prestigious universities and industries
    from around the world, altogether have previously written 47
    books and hundreds of papers on the subject and here they give a
    synthesis of their experiences and opinions on how best to
    change the global use of solvents in order to obtain benefits of
    technology and at the same time limit risk and health effects,
    and more.
