Comprehensive toxicological data on raw material is practically non existent, which means designing green product development processes can be tedious and time consuming.

ViridisChem Inc., is offering a solution that will help scientists make environmentally friendly decisions throughout the product development life-cycle.

Our first product the Green Pocketbook® is a cloud based reference tool that helps scientists assess chemicals of high concern and identify safer alternatives that are less hazardous for people and environmentally friendly.

Containing more than 90 million chemical entries from the worlds best structure, reaction and literature databases, the Green Pocketbook combines the power of a search engine with user friendly decisions support tools.

Unlike other chemistry reference products, it is the only software tool in the industry that correlates physical and toxicological properties then calculates a Green Score based on these properties.  The software allows the user to visually compare multiple chemicals side by side for easy assessment and decision making.


Other Features include:

Flexible Search options, search by;

  • Chemical Name, CAS#, IUPAC Name
  • Structure, or draw your own
  • Citation, Reference, Patents

Comprehensive Physical and Toxicological data

  • The software displays many of the properties contained in the MSDS plus more.
  • There over 24 physical properties and over 26 toxicological properties that can be configured and displayed to suite your preferences
