This page provides a description and a link to a "Environmental Fate Data Base (EFDB)" database that provides information needed when modeling exposure levels or performing exposure assessment.

Short Description

The EFDB is a tremendous aid in identifying persistent chemical classes, as well as physical or chemical properties that may correlate to particular behavior in the environment. The EFDB is comprised of several interrelated files, DATALOG, CHEMFATE, BIOLOG, and BIODEG. These databases share a CAS# file containing over 20,000 chemicals with preferred name and formula, and a bibliographic file containing full references on over 36,000 articles cited. Includes information for chemical properties, fate properties, degradation and toxicity.
