A Survey of the Biotransformation of Drugs and Chemicals in Animalsby D R Hawkins (Editor), D Kirkpatrick (Contribution by), Ian Midgley (Contribution by), Peter Farmer (Contribution by), P Batten (Contribution by)
Biotransformations, Volume 1, 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.
