Description

The purpose of this important monograph is to provide the reader with a better understanding of the toxicity, channels of absorption, and metabolism of explosives by the body. This one-of-a-kind work also incorporates the symptoms and clinical manifestations of poisoning by these compounds. It discusses how the disposal of explosives and their degradation products from munition manufacturing plants affect our environment. This resource gives special attention to the methods of analysis of explosives and their metabolites in body fluids. It also features explosives and their degradation products in water and soil. This significant book provides an excellent review and reference for toxicologists, physicians, and environmental chemists interested in this field.
