The plasticizer database was developed to contain data required in plasticizers application. Attempts were made to include large number of plasticizers used in various sectors of industry to provide information for all users and to help in finding new solutions and formulations. Plasticizers included in the database can be divided into two categories: generic chemical name compounds and commercial plasticizers which are either mixtures of several components, industrial grades of particular compound, polymeric materials, or products having unknown, complex composition. The database contains solvents representing all chemical groups of materials which considered as plasticizers. In most cases, plasticizers differ from solvents by boiling point, which is above 250oC, but some plasticizers are used as temporary plasticizers or are expect to react with other components of mixture. These substances will not meet the boiling temperature standard but will still be included since they play role of plasticizers. The large number of the plasticizers and the data fields makes this database the most comprehensive database on plasticizers ever available in any source.
