Modeling and decision support systems for pesticide risk assessments are invariably data hungry, and there has been a long and widely recognized need for a single authoritative and comprehensive database of pesticide physicochemical and toxicological properties that is available both as an online resource and in a portable electronic format suitable for embedding in or interrogating from other software applications. The Pesticide Properties DataBase (PPDB) has been developed to address this need. The online system is free of charge and currently contains records for about 1 800 active substances and their metabolites. It holds data required for modeling the fate and ecotoxicological risks of pesticides in both terrestrial and aquatic systems, as well as information on chemical identifiers and data relating to regulatory issues and commercial products.
