Request about chemicals data


A colleague of mine is interested in basic information about chemical
usage.  See message below. I suggested that folks on this alias could help
her. If you have any information please let her know.

Also, some of you may be interested in her recent publication:
"Technology Forces at Work: Profiles of Environmental Research and
Development at Dupont, Intel, Monsanto, and Xerox." It is available on the
web at: http://www.rand.org/publications/MR/MR1068/.

Thanks for the help.

Beth Lachman
PS She is not on the p2-tech alias so please be sure to e-mail her directly.
