ChemProp Data References

When using data extracted from ChemProp databases, the following requirements apply.

Internal ChemProp Database

Internal datasets are directly accessed in ChemProp via structure or property retrieval.

Bioconcentration in fish

The publication of these data is currently in preparation, this reference will be updated accordingly. Until released, please contact Dr. Monika Nendza, Analytical Laboratory Luhnstedt, Germany, for permission:

Daphnia magna LC50

These data are published already. Please cite:

Soil sorption coefficient (log Koc)

These data are published already. Please cite:

External Databases

External datasets are provided in separate files. They can be searched and accessed from within ChemProp, but also opened directly by appropriate other software. Typically, these are particularly prepared Excel sheets.

Biodegradation in air, water, soil and sediment (CNRS set)

The data are provided from the University of Lyon, France. Please ask us to provide the contact to Dr. Timothy Vogel in order to obtain the permission.

Biodegradation in soil (ECT set)

The data are provided from ECT Flörsheim a. M., Germany. Please contact Thomas Junker in order to obtain the permission:

CAESAR sets: bioconcentration factor, skin sensitization, carcinogenicity, mutagenicity, developmental toxicity

These 5 data sets marked with the word "CAESAR" are provided from the former partner EU project CAESAR, co-ordinated by Emilio Benfenati, Istituto di Ricerche Farmacologiche Mario Negri Milan, Italy. For correct citation, please visit the CAESAR web appearance:

Toxicity data

The toxicity data provided in Excel sheets were collected by the group of Prof. Mark Cronin, Liverpool John Moores University, UK.
Please check the individual files for references. In the absence of them, citing ChemProp will be sufficient.
