Shows how to choose the most effective techniques for assessing the toxicity of chemicals in both food and the environment. examines a wide range of volatile compounds from toxic aldehydes and pesticides to micotoxins and dioxins.
Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbens; polychlorinated biphenyls; analysis of nitrosamines in foods and beverages; analysis of foods and related samples of heterocyclic amine mutagens/carcinogens; chromatographic analysis of mycotoxins; nitrobenzene and related compounds; chlorohydrocarbons (TCDD); organophosphorous esters; insecticidal carbamates; toxic carbonyl compounds.
". . .a practical collection. . .describing chromatographic methods for analyzing significant food and environmental contaminants and chronically toxic substances. The table of contents reflects the types of chemicals referenced in this volume. Shibamato focuses. . .concern on gathering adequate knowledge about uptake of substances where humans may be subjected to chronic toxicity. . ..Many tables and illustrative figures add to the usefulness of this book. It is suitable for academic and special libraries with an interest in environmental or food toxicants and in chromatographic applications. "
". . .particularly useful for people looking for general information before developing routing analysis. . .and for students who will find...an update application of chromatographic science in natural matrices. "
