Explanatory Dictionary of Key Terms in Toxicology
The objective of the Explanatory Dictionary of Concepts in Toxicology is to provide full definitions of toxicological terms chosen, based on their importance and complexity, from the point of intersection of chemistry and toxicology. This requires a full description of the underlying concepts of the terms, beyond that provided in a typical dictionary definition. These explanatory definitions should help to overcome the barriers that are often caused by linguistic differences at the international level and between disciplines. The dictionary consists of about 68 terms chosen from the IUPAC Glossary of Terms Used in Toxicokinetics (Pure Appl. Chem., 76, pp. 1033–1082, 2004), organized under 22 main headings.
