You mean add to the SDS HyperGlossary.  Old habits die hard.

See page 187

From a quick read it differentiates between acute and chronic target organ = effects.

Will have to add that one to the MSDS HyperGlossary at some point!

Valued colleagues:
I'm reading several SDS from our vendor (Chemwatch) and finding the acronym/initialism: STOT.
Most reasonable definition I've been able to find is Specific Target Organ Toxicity.
Is that correct? Is this a new abbreviation? A very old one?
