Type a substance name in the text field. If JavaScript is enabled, you will see a popup box below the text field, that shows you some matching names. These suggestions are updated with each letter you typed in after a short delay. If the requested name is displayed, select it and submit the query via the search button or the enter key.

Partial word

At your first visit of the Dangerous Goods Quickinfo the partial word box is checked. This means that substances are shown, that contain the entered text anywhere in their name. If you want to exactly search for a name, remove the check mark at partial word.


If you want to perform a search with self-defined placeholders, remove the check mark at partial word. Use "%" as a wildcard for any numbers of characters and "_" for a single character. Examples:

  • %acid
  • %color_
  • water%solution
