summary: The chemical is more and more confronted with difficulties arizing from chemical compounds produced throughout the manufacture of halogenated biphenyls or phenols. wisdom of those chemical compounds and their damaging houses is sporadic, and the extreme toxicity of this workforce varies commonly. This informative revised variation provides the chemistry, environmental toxins difficulties, animal toxicology and knowledge approximately structure-activity relationships. a short evaluation is given of employee publicity and occupational disease. The e-book is split into 3 components: chemistry and environmental infection; experimental toxicology; and human publicity and results. end result of the good deal of curiosity in those compounds a lot new study paintings has been carried out because the first version of this publication was once released. This revised version has retained the effectiveness and readability of the 1st variation, whereas being supplemented with new details, condensed outdated info, and examples of modern incidents
