Abstract:

The report was prepared by the Committee on Hazardous Materials, Division of Chemistry and Chemical Technology, National Research Council, in response to a request from the Coast Guard for a systematic guide to rating the relative hazards of chemicals and other materials shipped in bulk over the waterways. It is a revised edition of earlier reports published in 1966, 1969, 1970, 1972, and has been expanded to include a total of 337 industrial chemicals. Believing that the study, though of restricted scope, may be of interest to other groups concerned with assessing hazardous aspects of chemicals, and believing particularly that future work of this kind will benefit from criticism of the present effort, we are publishing the report for general circulation.
