The ChemAgora web portal provides search capabilities to chemical data from resources available online, enabling users to cross-reference the substances they are working on with both regulatory information and public chemical databases.
ChemAgora is a JRC contribution to assist stakeholders in the chemical risk assessment environment to gain a quick overview of globally available data about chemicals. This speeds up the process of data discovery and saves valuable resources. ChemAgora, through an on-the-fly search, informs whether a chemical is known or not in each of 17 external data sources, and/or the OECD eChemPortal (featuring another 30 external sources), and provides clickable links leading to the third-party web site pages containing the information. These third-party data sources contain regulatory and/or scientific chemical information, typically using the CAS Registry Number (CASRN, a registered trademark of the American Chemical Society) as the substance identifier. ChemAgora can also map InChIKeys to CASRNs, which bridges the gap between more regulatory and scientific environments.

ChemAgora, a web application designed and developed in the context of the “Data Infrastructure for Chemical Safety Assessment” (diXa) project, provides search capabilities to chemical data from resources available online, enabling users to cross-reference their search results with both regulatory chemical information and public chemical databases. ChemAgora, through an on-the-fly search, informs whether a chemical is known or not in each of the external data sources and provides clikable links leading to the third-party web site pages containing the information. The original purpose of the ChemAgora application was to correlate studies stored in the diXa data warehouse with available chemical data. Since the end of the diXa project, ChemAgora has evolved into an independent portal, currently accessible directly through the ChemAgora home page, with improved search capabilities of online data sources.
