Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Describes the database which determines the level of a MAK value and gives a summary of the relevant international literature. Volume 6 adds 29 new compounds, giving detailed information on their toxic effects and modes of action, effects in man, effects on animals, geotoxicity, carcinogenicity, and manifesto. The reviews are not just accounts of the published data, but also critical evaluations, and provide reliable advice for institutions concerned with health protection and the environment.
