Selected Topics in Hazardous Materials
This is a one-volume compendium of hazardous materials that discusses the toxic effects of these materials on human health and the global environment. It provides comprehensive coverage of individual toxic elements, covers hazardous material groups and includes more general articles such as evaluation and testing of carcinogens, transport of pollutants and inhalation toxicology. The fully-referenced articles are presented in alphabetical order.
