Average Molecular Weight Molecular weight in g/mol, determined from molecular formula
Monoisotopic Molecular Weight The sum of the masses of the atoms in a molecule using the unbound, ground-state, rest mass of the principle (most abundant) isotope for each element instead of the isotopic average mass.
Solubility water solubility in mg/mL using ALOGPS solubility predictor
LogP/Hydrophobicity Water/octanol partition coefficient determined using JChem logp predictor
MOL File Text version of contaminant structure in Mol file format

SMILES Canonical SMILES string corresponding to contaminant structure
Appearance Outward or visible aspect of the contaminant
Melting Point Melting point (if solid) or boiling point (if liquid) in degrees Celsius
Route of Exposure Description of how the contaminant enters the human body
Mechanism of Toxicity Description of how the contaminant works or what it binds to at a molecular level
Metabolism The biotransformation of the contaminant after it enters the body
Toxicity Values Experimental toxicity values of the contaminant. Usually LD50 or LC50 values
Lethal Dose The dose that would cause death in a human being
Carcinogenicity The level to which the contaminant is invovled in the promotion of cancer or in the increase of its propagation. The scale displayed is the IARC Classification.
Uses/Sources Description of how humans commonly encounter the contaminant - how the contaminant is used or in what products they are found
Minimum Risk Level An estimate of the daily human exposure to a hazardous substance that is likely to be without appreciable risk of adverse noncancer health effects over a specified duration of exposure
Health Effects The long term physiological deficiencies, damage or problems caused by the contaminant
Symptoms The immediate and short term physiological effects of the contaminant
Treatment Possible care provided to improve symptoms and health effects caused by the contaminant (especially medical procedures or applications that are intended to relieve illness or injury)
General References References for the information retrieved for the contaminant. Journal articles are hyperlinked to PubMed.
Targets Substances that the contaminant chemically binds to
