It comprises 60 original and peer-reviewed papers selected from over 100 oral and poster ...

  • ISOCYANATES: Sampling, Analysis, and Health Effects

    STP 1408 examines the latest data and technology on isocyanates, and features topics ranging from sampling and analysis methods to health effects. Isocyanates are widely used in many industrial processes because of their high activity and affinity to many substances, which lead to polymerization, as well as the properties for the resulting ...

  • Advances in Biological and Chemical Terrorism Countermeasures

    Biological and chemical weapons are a growing terrorist threat to the United States and other nations and countermeasures continue to evolve as a national and global priority issue. To keep up with this rapidly changing and vital field we must establish the current state-of-the-science on countermeasures to form a platform from which to offer ...

  • Avian and Mammalian Wildlife Toxicology, Second Symposium

    This publication addresses the important wildlife toxicology problems such as: selection of surrogate species; predicting toxicity; matching concentrations of chemicals in various media with concentration in organisms, which cause various toxicological effects or ...

  • Environmental Aspects of Converting CW Facilities to Peaceful Purposes

    There is hardly any information available on the chronic effects of low doses of chemical warfare agents, but there is a growing body of data on the chronic effects of exposure to other toxic materials (PAHs, PABs and the like). One of the four main themes of the book is thus the chronic effects of extended exposure to low doses of toxic material. ...
