Safety and Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS)

MSDS Sources to Start With

Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) contain information on chemicals and their properties along with health, physical, and environmental hazards. As they are provided by manufacturers, there is no centralized location so you may have to look in multiple places.

About the Science Libraries

The Kenan Science Library is on the ground floor of Venable Hall. The Science Library Annex is located behind Wilson library. See our library page for locations and hours.
