This is the seventh volume of the series on human biological monitoring produced jointly by DG V/E (Luxembourg) and the JRC Ispra, of the European Commission. It contains monographs on antimony, soluble barium compounds, hexane and methyl ethyl ketone, and thallium and tin. For each noxious agent included in the monograph the hazard evaluation takes into account the concentration of the substance in various biological media, concentration of its metabolites in the same media and determination of the adverse biological changes as a result of the reaction of the organism to the exposure. For each substance the review includes information on chemical identification, a summary of the effects on human health (including metabolism), available biological indicators (of dose and/or effects), recommended analytical methods, and references. In the present volume, 40 toxic single substances or groups widely used in industry and agriculture have been covered.
