PRIO – A tool for Risk Reduction of Chemicals

Substance groups

In order to facilitate your search, we have classified certain substances according to their substance group.

Sometimes it is easier to find a substance in PRIO through a substance group. For example, if you search for hexapentyldistannoxane, it could be a good approach to search for organotin compounds, instead. It is possible however, that many substances pertaining to a specific group are not included in the database. This depends on the properties of each substance and if it fulfils PRIO's criteria.

For each substance group PRIO will display a list of substances that pertain to that specific group and some information about their properties and uses.
