NORMAN Suspect List Exchange

In September 2014, NORMAN members ( expressed the need to exchange various lists of substances to improve their suspect screening efforts. The NORMAN Suspect List Exchange ( was established as part of the 2015 Joint Programme of Activities as a central access point for NORMAN members (and others) to find suspect lists relevant for their environmental monitoring question. All suspect lists currently available are compiled in the main website (; this Zenodo community collection will act as the repository for the public website (being developed).

Each data collection will contain a variety of files (original contribution; some modified) with excel or comma-separated file (csv) with all available information, e.g. as provided as supporting information for the publication, along with a list of the structures as InChIKeys only, which allows suspect searching using MetFrag or other workflows. We also provide references for the data: please cite these references if you use the respective datasets. 

Recent Suspect Exchange and Dashboard presentations/publications include: ICCE Oslo 2017: NORMAN Suspects meet the Dashboard and NORMAN MassBank and Suspect Exchange; SETAC Mixtures Denver: Identifying Complex Mixtures with Cheminformatics and HR-MS; ACS Fall 2017: Markush Enumeration for UVCBs, a viewpoint article and several presentations at

There is an interactive merged list of all suspect substances (update in progress)

DISCLAIMER: The NORMAN Suspect List Exchange and NORMAN SusDat is a compilation of information provided by NORMAN network members and are “living documents” undergoing curation and improvement. NORMAN SusDat has merged many chemical lists provided to the NORMAN Suspect Exchange into a common format and includes selected identifiers and predicted values as a service for NORMAN members. We are working with contributors and cheminformatics experts to resolve many issues and update the list accordingly. The original lists on the Suspect Exchange ( should be consulted to verify chemical information if necessary (see Source column). Please report any issues to
