Abstract

This is the fourth volume in a series that is planned to cover the carcinogenicity, the reproductive toxicity and the immunotoxicity of chemicals. The aim was to provide readily available summary reviews of the salient scientific evidence that underlies the assessment of a particular chemical in terms of carcinogenicity. This volume deals with 9 metals and 25 related compounds. The prologue includes a description of the fundamentals of bio-inorganic chemistry. For each metal or compound an introductory text describing its occurrence, chemistry and biological properties is presented.
