Overview

Biotransformations, Volume 2, is a unique and important source for those involved in the discovery and development of new compounds. The whole series broadly covers the scientific literature for the period 1987 to 1994. The series provides a complete survey of the biotransformations, in vertebrates, of the following: Pharmaceuticals; agrochemicals; food additives; environmental chemicals; industrial chemicals. Biotransformations provides a ready way of accessing information on the known pathways for the biotransformation of structurally-related compounds. Key functional groups provide an index-related procedure for retrieving information on compounds of interest. A further index allows the retrieval of examples of specific biochemical reactions which may have wider application. Each volume corresponds roughly with the scientific literature published during a calendar year. Each volume contains a review chapter which discusses examples of novel biotransformations, species differences, stereochemical aspects and mechanisms of toxicity associated with specific biotransformations.

Booknews
The fourth volume in an annual series bringing together all current information on biotransformations in vertebrate animals in a readily accessible form, this volume covering calendar year 1990. It provides an up-to-date survey of the literature on the biotransformation of pharmaceuticals, pesticides, food additives, and environmental and industrial chemicals--providing a comprehensive database which allows an increased awareness of patterns of species differences and the influence of chemical structure on biotransformation pathways. Cumulatively indexed by compound, key functional group, and reaction type, covering all entries in volumes 1-4. Acidic paper. (Note: the British price is 99.50 pounds sterling.) Annotation c.
