Tips and Tricks to find Safety Data Sheets

Find any MSDS of different products by following this guide.

To conduct research or operate a chemical within your facility, the out most importance of handling hazardous material is of course,safety. Although they are the pinnacle of ensuring a secure environment, there are times you do not have them available in your lab, specially if you are just starting to research an alternative chemical in your formulation. Let it be finding the MSDS for MPG MSDS for IPA or the SDS for MMA, which are all common solvents. Or looking for more particular material like the SDS of 2-HEMA, Butyl Acrylate, or 2-EHA. Here are some ways to get safety data sheets.

Let’s start with the obvious choice, Google. There are small little hacks one can use to find specific chemicals in this search engine. Using quotations (“”)around the main search terms is a small feature not known by many daily Google users. For example, assume you are trying to find the MSDS of Styrene Monomer but want to locate it for a specific manufacturer. To influence the search algorithm to only show you content with the manufacturer name, place the quotes around the supplier’s name, then search. To further demonstrate, say you are needing to find exposure scenarios of Styrene Monomer from Shell. Simply type on the search bar for “Styrene Monomer exposure scenarios Shell” and then press enter. You now have a curated list containing those five key terms.

What if your chemical has hardly any local European manufacturers that have developed their own safety data sheet? A useful website is provided by the European Chemical Agency, for short ECHA. By going to you can search for chemicals either by name or by CAS number. Then by scrolling down and clicking on the name that matches your product, you will be presented a section titled Key Datasets. The section called “Brief Profile” will provide you with plenty of information that would normally be placed in an MSDS.
