MSDS have limits as we all know and have expressed in this discussion list,
I have found these right to know fact sheets (link listed below) full of
useful information (and they are free!). I especially find the physical
properties located on the back page to be very comprehensive for a quick
reference guide with more in-depth information than most MSDS.

Incidentally, did anyone see that Neil Langerman was quoted in the New York
Times last Tuesdays (18-Jan 2010) Science section regarding the toxicity of
cosmetics used during ancient Egyptian times; It is nice to see chemistry
placed in a positive light and in a media vehicle as large as the Times.

If you are using a third-party MSDS management system for your
college/university and it supports both PC and Mac users (i.e., those who
browse using Mozilla) please let me know if you love your system.   I am not
looking for anyone to scan MSDS's for us...we have several thousand, which I
am sure is not unique to those of us in academia...

Was all set to purchase one vendor's product but they 'upgraded' and there
is currently no access to certain menus on a Mac...and they are not sure
when there will be a fix.

Many thanks,
