I thought some subscribers might be interested in noting these
resources.

There's the Hazardous Substances Data Bank, available through NTIS and
maintained by the National Library of Medicine (and from what I
understand, coming soon to the EPA web page for free). It's heavy
going, but it has lots of information on lots of chemicals and is
frequently updated. The closest thing I can think of to a handbook is
the Philip Howard series -- "Handbook of Environmental Fate and
Exposure Data, Volumes 1 - ?", published by Lewis Publishers in
Chelsea, MI. The content of these volumes is similar to what's on
HSDB.

The Toxic Watch series from INFORM classifies TRI chemicals into a few
simplified categories. A list of endocrine disruptors is given in T.
Colburn, F.S. von Sall, and A.M. Soto, "Developmental Effects of
Endocrine-Disrupting Chemicals in Wildlife and Humans," Environmental
Health Perspectives, 101, No. 5, October 1993. The International
Panel on Climate Change puts out a big report every couple of years
that includes information on ozone depleting potentials and global
warming potentials.

But you want *a* handbook. If you make one, let me know.
