We have meticulously collected and curated data from reliable sources from government (US EPA, EU-REACH, NCI/NIH, United Nations, OSHA, FDA, etc.), educational institutes, and private sources. In short, all the chemical, toxicological data available from most public and private sources is available through a single tool.
After collecting the experimental data from all the possible sources, we used QSAR models to estimate the missing data and utilized this information to calculate the ecological, health, and safety scores based on the guidelines by United Nationa, EPA and EU-REACH. As a result, we have one of the most comprehensive chemical database that allows to provide in-depth chemical and process related analysis.
After talking to many researchers, we quickly realised that providing references to citations and patents related to the chemicals offers tremendous advantage of having all the information together for better decision-making.

Green Analyzer For Comprehensive Process Analysis
ViridisChem provides toxicity analysis of processes, their waste, with the ability to drill-down to individual steps. And it offers following unique capabilities that are critical to scientists:
- Identify the steps and chemicals that are causing the high toxicity score
- Identify and select better chemicals with low toxicity
- Offer what-if scenarios by replacing toxic chemicals and solvents with less toxic, less volatile choices and estimating the improved reaction analysis scores
- Compare possible reaction paths with minimum toxicity and waste implications
Our product design allows us to integrate seamlessly with industry-popular products (like SciFinder, Reaxys, CambridgeSoft’s e-notebook) being used within company’s med-chem and process-chem departments.
Acknowledgement about data sources and estimation tools used
We have developed our chemical, citation, and reaction databases by compiling and curating information obtained from number of public-domain and private-domain sources. We hereby would like to acknowledge and thank the public domain sources from which we have received some of the data:
- Article titles and abstracts from MEDLINE®/PubMed®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine (NLM)
- Keywords from MeSH® database, the curated medical vocabulary resource maintained by the U.S. National Library of Medicine (NLM)
- Chemical identification information from PubChem® Substance and PubChem® Compound, databases developed and owned by National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI®)
- Chemical identification and physical properties information from TOXicology Data NETwork (TOXNET®), a group of databases covering chemicals and drugs, diseases and the environment, environmental health, occupational safety and health, poisoning, risk assessment and regulations, and toxicology. It is managed by the Toxicology and Environmental Health Information Program (TEHIP) in the Division of Specialized Information Services (SIS) of the National Library of Medicine (NLM)
- Chemical physical properties and toxicological properties from The Aggregated Computational Toxicology Resource (ACToR® ). It is a database on environmental chemicals that is searchable by chemical name and other identifiers, and by chemical structure. This information is consolidated from more than 200 publicly available sources of data
Disclaimer and cautionary word:
- Green Pocketbook is meant as the quick reference tool to get chemical related information for scientist’s day-to-day work. The information provided has been carefully curated and validated using more than one sources when available. However, ViridisChem cannot guarantee accuracy, and will appreciate any suggestion to improve the data
- ViridisChem has access to both experimental and estimated data related to toxicological properties. However, for the sake of consistency and to be able to compare data accurately, we are currently showing estimated data for most of the toxicological properties. Once we have enough experimental data, we plan to show both experimental and estimated data for most properties
