Roles Classification
Chemical Role(s): environmental contaminant
Any minor or unwanted substance introduced into the environment that can have undesired effects.
protic solvent
A polar solvent that is capable of acting as a hydron (proton) donor.
(via piperidine )
A molecular entity having an available pair of electrons capable of forming a covalent bond with a hydron (Bronsted base) or with the vacant orbital of some other molecular entity (Lewis base).
(via piperidine )
A substance that increases the rate of a reaction without modifying the overall standard Gibbs energy change in the reaction.
(via piperidine )
non-polar solvent

(via piperidine )
Bronsted base
A molecular entity capable of accepting a hydron from a donor (Bronsted acid).
(via organic amino compound )
Biological Role(s): carcinogenic agent
A role played by a chemical compound which is known to induce a process of carcinogenesis by corrupting normal cellular pathways, leading to the acquistion of tumoral capabilities.
apoptosis inducer
Any substance that induces the process of apoptosis (programmed cell death) in multi-celled organisms.
An agent that increases the frequency of mutations above the normal background level, usually by interacting directly with DNA and causing it damage, including base substitution.
plant metabolite
Any eukaryotic metabolite produced during a metabolic reaction in plants, the kingdom that include flowering plants, conifers and other gymnosperms.
(via piperidine )
human metabolite
Any mammalian metabolite produced during a metabolic reaction in humans (Homo sapiens).
(via piperidine )
Application(s): reagent
A substance used in a chemical reaction to detect, measure, examine, or produce other substances.
(via piperidine )
protic solvent
A polar solvent that is capable of acting as a hydron (proton) donor.
(via piperidine )
non-polar solvent
