Glossary for Toxicokinetics of Chemicals

This glossary contains definitions of 355 terms frequently used in the multidisciplinary field of toxicokinetics. The glossary is compiled primarily for chemists who find themselves currently working in toxicology and requiring a knowledge of the expressions used in toxicokinetics, especially in relation to hazard and risk assessment. Medical terms are included because of their frequent occurrence in the toxicological literature and because chemists would not normally be expected to be familiar with them. There are three annexes, one containing a list of abbreviations used in toxicokinetics, one containing a list of abbreviations of international bodies and legislation that are relevant to toxicology and chemical safety, and one giving sources of interest for further reading.
