"The new CAS number search function reduces the ambiguity of search results for the global chemical industry," said Julie Mason, general manager of "Depending on where in the world you are, one chemical may have a different name or different spelling creating the potential for a very dangerous situation. The only way to guarantee that the product you've located online is indeed the product you were searching for, is by using a universally accepted numbering taxonomy such as the CAS number system."

The ICISsearch online buyer's guide does not require companies to pay to register its products and company information. Historically, only advertisers were included in the chemical industry buyer's guides, limiting access to many chemicals, products and services. With ICISsearch, chemical purchasers can now source products from around the globe, from ammonium nitrate (6484-52-2) to zinc sulfate (7733-02-0), using a CAS number or a product, service or company name.
