ChemWatch and ChemFFX

Queen's University offers real-time electronic SDS reference through ChemFFX. ChemFFX is a database developed and maintained by ChemWatch®. The Backpack module contains sophisticated search engines and extensive details on thousands of chemicals. This data is commonly presented as either Chemwatch written (Gold) Safety Data Sheets or Vendor (supplier) written SDSs or both. The Chemwatch written SDSs are often preferable because they're more detailed, are available in multiple languages and are in a consistent format for easy reading. The Backpack module contains sophisticated search engines and extensive details on thousands of chemicals.

ChemFFX can be used on desktop computers as well as mobile devices. After hours, for an MSDS sheet when a computer or the internet is unavailable you can contact Queen's Campus Security at 613-533-6733 (non emergency line).
