Explosive and Energetic chemicals
Explosive Hazard Identification in Process Development and shipping
Enter a chemical name, upload or draw your chemical structure.
DG Assessor assess whether your chemical is likely to be energetic, explosive or self-reactive. Its ideal for process scale up or situations where you may not have enough material for full scale testing, or need to identify and prioritise high risk chemicals
Its assessments also help DGSAs fulfil requirements outlined by the 2019 UN Manual of Tests for the identification and shipment of dangerous goods.
Using industry best practice guidelines and further enhanced and refined in conjunction with major Pharmaceutical and chemical companies, DG Assessor allows fast assessments to improve process safety, help with GHS assessments, logistics and dangerous goods assesments.
Check any chemical fast
A structure based check that works with proprietary and novel chemicals, or search via a chemical or common name. Upload thousands of chemicals in a single check (.sd, smiles and inchi). Or use our webservices to automate checks from ELNs etc.
Optionally include data from Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC), Yoshida Correlations and scale to further refine predictions
Powerful yet simple to use
Easy to use and understand, even if you’re not a chemist or compliance expert. But within a single click access detailed technical information and a full breakdown of what structural elements of the chemical leads to its explosive risk.
Chemicals are group into risk categories of low, medium, high and very high.
Developed in conjunction with a major Pharmaceutical companies safety and process chemistry groups. Its algorithms and checks also help fulfil the requirements and assessments laid out in the UN Manual of Tests and Criteria for assessing chemicals for potential safety concerns before handling or shipping and ECHA CLP assesment procedures (section 2.1.4) 'Screening procedures and waiving of testing' for chemicals and Chemical Safety Board recomendations on assessing chemicals prior to use.
Available as a self-service pay per check, annual plans or an unlimited Enterprise plans.

Reference material and further reading
A Chemical Safety Board report into fatal explosion highlights the use of the O.R.E.O.S methodology (which DG assessor also implements) in its key lessons section as a way to identify thermal and reactive hazards. DG Assessor correctly highlights the chemicals involved in the explosion as high risk chemicals.
