Organic and Environmental features of Chromium specializes in the organic and environmental elements of chromium and its compounds, with emphasis at the most vital features in their toxicology and body structure. issues coated diversity from the construction and occupational publicity of chromium compounds to the presence of chromium in air, soil, and normal waters. The purposes of chromium in mobilephone biology and drugs also are discussed.

Comprised of eleven chapters, this quantity starts with an outline of the poisonous and carcinogenic results of chromium and chromium compounds, through a dialogue at the construction and occupational publicity of chromium compounds. The reader is then brought to the extra universal analytical equipment utilized in the decision of chromium in environmental and organic samples. next chapters discover the dietary position of chromium; absorption, delivery, and excretion of chromium in people and animals; mutagenic and cytogenetic results of chromium compounds; and organ toxicity of chromium in animals. The carcinogenic results of chromium, together with its results at the epidermis, also are considered.

This monograph should be of curiosity to scholars, practitioners, and researchers within the fields of biology, body structure, and chemistry, in addition to people with an target curiosity within the ways that chromium and its compounds act in organic fabrics and within the human surroundings.
