About the Book

Unlike most books, this one actually does risk assessments for you for over 110 chemicals that are confirmed or probable air toxics. All chemicals are analyzed with a scientifically sound methodology-outlined in the book-to assess public health risk associated with exposure to air toxics. Methodology will allow you to properly handle all air toxic health concerns within a practical decision-free framework. This permits the application of methodology to any new chemical.

Each chemical or compound is organized by synonym, molecular weight, molecular formula, AALG, occupational limits, drinking water limits, toxicity profile and indexed by CAS number, and synonyms.
