Investigate Organic Compounds to Observe Developmental Toxicity
The Industrial Solvents Developmental Toxicity Database consists of the chemical structures and associated chemical/physical properties of 94 individual solvents listed in Schardein's third edition of "Chemically Induced Birth Defects".
Conformational analysis and full energy minimization were utilized to obtain low energy 3-D structures. The chemical and physical properties calculated by Molecular Modeling Pro represent steric, solubility/transport, and electronic characteristics: molecular weight, molecular volume, density, total surface area, logP, hydrophilic-lipophilic balance, solubility parameter (segmented by dispersion, polarity, and hydrogen bonding), hydrogen bond donating/accepting capabilities, dipole moment, molar refractivity, water solubility, hydrophilic surface area, polar surface area, and molecular connectivity indices. Each data base entry lists the name, CAS registry number, and observed overall developmental toxicity (positive, negative, equivocal, unknown) within the individual animal species of mouse, rat, and rabbit.
The Industrial Solvents Developmental Toxicity Database is a useful reference source for toxicology professionals, as well as an invaluable tool in the investigation of the requirements for organic compounds to exhibit developmental toxicity.
