The purpose of this book is to provide a convenient sourceof environmental information to the users of 
Sittig’s Hand-book of Toxic and Hazardous Chemicals and Carcinogens,4th Edition
, edited by Richard Pohanish. It is a direct com- panion to
in that for most of the chemicals described in
two volumes, this
 International Resources Guide
 presents the manufacturers of those substances.This book is intended for chemists, toxicologists, labora-tory technicians, manufacturers, safety professionals andgovernment personnel involved in environmental and indus-trial safety and health matters. The ability to identify theactual manufacturers of hazardous materials is importantwhere detailed background information is required wheninvestigating chemical accidents, exposures, product con-tamination, faulty labeling and other incidents involvingchemicals and their effect on workers or the environment.This
 International Resources Guide to Hazardous Chem-icals
also includes resources for chemical, environmentaland industrial safety and hygiene information: chemicalindustry associations, international government environ-mental agencies, United States environmental agencies,State agencies, Poison Control Centers, and a guide to Hot-lines, Databases, and Useful Web sites.Many resources were used to compile the information inthis book. The hazardous chemicals listed here are takenfrom
Sittig, 4th Edition
. For a few chemicals in
, their makers are not listed, perhaps because they are made in suchlimited quantities that they are sold through specialty mid-dlemen and catalog houses. The primary resources for  preparing the list of manufacturers in this book were (1) theWeb sites of the companies, (2) membership in special sec-tions of United States chemical societies, the EuropeanChemical Industry Council (CEFIC) and societies in India,Japan, Asia, Italy and elsewhere, and (3) sites in which com- panies register themselves as producers of particular prod-ucts, such as the
Thomas Directories
in the U.S. and Europe,the American Chemical Society
, and theBritish Chemical Industries Association
. Directaccess to these sites are quickly available to any Internetuser. They are listed in Section VII – Hotlines, Databasesand Useful Web Sites.Finally, a caveat: no listing of manufacturers of hazardouschemicals can ever be complete. Indeed, the situationchanges daily. Just during the preparation of this material,many major producers of chemicals, petrochemicals, andagro chemicals were merged, combined and ultimatelydivested. First they combine, then they spin off product lines,they then rename themselves in the current fad of the day.Atlantic Refining merged with Amoco, which was bought by BPP.L.C. BPAmoco became BPP.L.C.Texaco was merged with Chevron to become Chevron-Texaco.Phillips Petroleum announced a union with Conoco, to become Conoco Phillips.Dow Chemical bought Union Carbide.Henkel in Germany bought Cognis, and has spun it off.Monsanto spun off its chemical business into Solutia.Monsanto was merged into Pharmacia and now will bespun off as a pure agricultural chemical business. Phar-macia will keep the pharmaceutical end of Monsanto.Ciba and Sandoz formed Novartis.The agricultural chemicals of Novartis, together withAstraZeneca agro chemicals formed Syngenta, aSwiss firm.Rhone-Poulenc merged with Hoechst to form Aventis;the resulting agro chemical portion will be sold toBayer of Germany.The lines between pharmaceuticals, chemicals and agricul-ture sciences continue to come together, then widen. There-fore, when seeking out a manufacturer of the substance inwhich you have an interest, use these lists for the beginningof your search and jump into the world wide web.This book is divided into eight sections:
The chemical industry has been a prime focus for globalconsolidations wherein the same generic chemical productsmay be produced world-wide, using different trade names indifferent countries. Also, different subsidiaries may produceand/or market the same products in various countries.Moreover, there are constant spin-offs and consolidations of  product lines among companies. The companies listed herefor each chemical may be either the U.S. parent, subsidiaryor division, or a foreign parent company or its units. Sub-sidiaries and/or affiliates of parent companies have beenlimited to major product line companies or operatinggroups; they do not include non-chemical producing units or foreign subsidiaries established to trade or manufacture inindividual countries. Most major corporations establish sep-arate subsidiaries or affiliates to operate in each foreign landand many of these entities produce or sell the same products,often under different trade names. For such entities, only the parent companies are listed.Many products are produced in small quantities, in tech-nical, reagent or laboratory purity grades. Consequently,many of the manufacturers included in this list are special-ists and perhaps not as well known as are the larger, interna-tional companies. We have attempted to make this an inter-national list covering a representative number of large,medium and small producers in various areas of the world.
