One never knows, although a case of beer at any college chem lab should get you a detailed spectroanalysis of any bottle of "stuff" you need to know about.
An MSDS doesn't have to be complete, they allow for trade secrets and chemicals that won't make you glow in the dark, or blow up while being extinguished. Good case in point: Sta-Bil, the famous pink fuel stabilizer. Anyone who has used it knows how well it works, but the MSDS only mentions something like 98% nahptha (gasoline stock) and there's no word of what the real important secret active ingredient is.
Incredible how common benzene products are, considering how tetragenetic (isn't that the new word for "cancerous" ?) they are.
I know what you mean about 'standard' ingredients, I see people rave about Seafoam every month, while the MSDS says "alcohol, oil, gasoline" pretty much in plain English.
