Editorial Reviews

Applied Organometallic Chemistry
This book raises the important issue of the lack of an agreed standard protocol for measuring the dermal absorption of metals....it recommends that a systematic body of experimental work be developed in order to design a single predictive algorithm on the processes controlling permeation routes and rates....although there is no such system currently in place, this book is full of information and references and...is not only extremely informative but is also very readable.
European Journal of Pharmaceutics and Biopharmaceutics
This book should not be missed not only in each laboratory dealing with environmental and dermatotoxicological problems, but also in pharmacies, because it gives valuable information for advising patients and customers.
Quarterly Review of Cosmetic Dermatology/ Journal of Applied Cosmetology
...useful as a stable and starting point to standardize the procedure for determining the real skin toxicity of all metal compounds reported. The accuracy of the data collected and the fame of the well-known authors...[make this book] indispensable...for the control-lab technicians [of] all the public health institutes in the world. This interesting scientific work will have to be in all the libraries of medicine and chemistry...as well as by those ...[of] cosmetic dermatology.
Retinoids & Lipid-Soluble Vitamins in Clinical Practice
'This book aims to collect together data about toxicity and penetration via the skin for 35 metals, a task which has never been undertaken before and which brings together a great deal of data from the former Eastern Block countries that have not been available or translated before.... ...it represents a vast compendium of information, never available in one place until now, and the reference lists alone will prove invaluable to workers in the field.
Booknews
Summarizes most of the rather slender literature pertaining to the absorption of metal-based substances across the skin, and whenever possible reports pertinent aspects of the interaction between the substances and cutaneous biology. Part of an effort to establish risk assessment values for toxic exposure, itself part of a larger effort to deal with the increasing metal in the human environment. Many of the articles, arranged by metal, include charts and sections on immunology and quantitative data. Time and space prevented constructing algorithms to assess dermal exposure to metal compounds from first principles. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
