That is indeed a very unusual quest, especially since almost every reagent that 
you may find listed in a catalog from Sigma or elsewhere would have multiple 
uses. For instance, even the very common salt is used in different applications 
for different purposes.  Nonetheless, it is always the inherent property of the 
"chemical" that is of significance. If you have the time, I may suggest that 
you simply search the various electronic databases (eg. Sci Citation index, 
Chemical Abstracts, Agricola, etc.) with each compound as the keyword. You may 
even "google" them (since you asked about websites).  The EPA, OSHA, etc., list 
chemicals and their hazards (with some uses) [http://www.epa.gov/epahome/
