This is my most popular introductory webinar and will provide you with a basic understanding of some of the most common physicochemical terms used in the prediction of likely exposure routes and hazardous effects; not only for human health but also for environmental fate and effects. What’s more, expanding your knowledge of chemistry will help you with the identification of structural alerts, the use of appropriate read across and mechanisms of action.
A unique feature of this training webinar is that you are encouraged to ‘raise your hand’ and put questions forward throughout the training – just as you would in a classroom environment.
- Categories of chemicals; organic, inorganic, polymers, UVCB and nanomaterials
- Chemical nomenclature (how chemicals are named);
- Chemical properties influence of toxicity;
- Using chemical structural alerts in predicting potential effects;
- Using physicochemical properties to predict exposure routes;
- Common chemical reactions, such as oxidation, reduction, hydrolysis and electrophilic reactions); and their relevance to human health and environmental effects;
- Types of chemical bonding; and,
- Intermolecular forces.
- Technical/scientific staff who work in a regulatory department
- Authors of safety data sheets (SDS) and/or extended safety data sheets (eSDS)
