Trace metals and infectious diseases by Jerome O Nriagu( )

12 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 881 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The combined effects of exposure to metals and pathogens on the burden of disease and the mechanisms of interactions between trace metals, pathogens, and the environment have largely been overlooked in animal and human studies. Drawing on expertise from several fields, this book focuses on the distribution, trafficking, fate, and effects of trace metals in biological systems, with the goal of enhancing our understanding of the relationships between homeostatic mechanisms of trace metals and the pathogenesis of infectious diseases. It provides a comprehensive review of current knowledge on vertebrate metal-withholding mechanisms and the strategies employed by different microbes to compete for metals to avoid starvation (or poisoning)

Phosphate minerals by Jerome O Nriagu( Book )

16 editions published between 1983 and 1984 in English and held by 454 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The literature on the geology, chemistry, and biochemistry of phosphorus generally takes its mineralogy for granted. The in cidental information on phosphate minerals given in these texts is often obsolescent and inaccurate. The few mineralogical texts that have dealt comprehensively with the phosphate minerals have now become outdated, and typically present the essential information in a manner unsuitable for nongeological readers. This volume is intended as a ready reference for workers who require good basic information on phosphate minerals or their synthetic equivalents. The topics covered should appeal to geologists and geochemists, lithologists, environmental scientists and engineers, chemists and biochemists who have any interest in the intricate world of phosphorus. The hard tissues of many vertebrates and the many pathological calcifications consist mostly of phosphate minerals. The precipita tion of these compounds also plays a major role in the ecological cycling of phosphorus, and occasionally even dominates the behavior of many trace metals in many geochemical and biolog ical systems. Indeed, many pegmatitic phosphate minerals have acquired some notoriety because of the rarer trace metals which they tend to accumulate. With the commercialization of phosphate fertilizers since the early part of the 19th century, phosphate minerals have assumed an important role in industrial chemistry and agriculture. Clearly, the study of phosphate minerals is important from the economic, agricultural, environmental and (human and animal) health viewpoint."

Environmental oxidants( Book )

8 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 399 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From the global to the cellular level, oxidants have provided the chemical dynamic for reactions both harmful and benign. As varied in type as in effect, oxidants include the oxides of nitrogen, sulfur, and carbon - implicated in the generation of smog - as well as oxidants useful in hypoxic cell-specific anticancer drugs and the treatment of contaminated waters. The complex nature of oxidants as well as their pervasiveness in the environment have made them keenly interesting to scientists monitoring environmental hazards and human health." "Environmental Oxidants is a broad-based, multidisciplinary study of the environmental chemistry and toxicology of oxidants as well as their widening role in pollution control. Featuring up-to-date research from internationally renowned scientists, the book sheds light on such critical topics as the evolution, production, distribution, and fate of oxidants in the atmosphere, hydrosphere, and biosphere; the influence of human activities on oxidative processes in the atmosphere; oxidative stress at the cellular, systemic, and ecosystem levels; and the use of oxidants to remediate polluted sites. Specific studies include photosynthetic oxygen evolution, oxidants in the unpolluted marine atmosphere, ozone formation in urban plumes, the impact of dynamics and transport on stratospheric ozone and other constituents, health effects and toxicology of ozone and nitrogen dioxide, and some hematological effects of oxidants."

Thallium in the environment by Jerome O Nriagu( Book )

8 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 351 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Since its discovery in 1861, thallium has been used in a variety of industrial products, from rat and ant poisons to photocells and infrared devices. But today, the increased use of thallium for emerging technologies in electronics, medicine, and other fields has also led to rising concerns about the health risks and environmental effects of this highly toxic element." "Thallium in the Environment offers completely up-to-date coverage of the environmental cycle as well as the chemical and toxicological aspects of thallium exposure. Written by an international panel of experts, the book addresses key issues concerning thallium's effects on aquatic and terrestrial environments, human health, and wildlife." "Bringing together the latest information on these areas in a single volume, this book will be welcomed by professionals and students working in environmental science, chemistry, and engineering, as well as toxicology, public health, environmental control, and other areas."--Jacket

Gaseous pollutants : characterization and cycling( Book )

9 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 333 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Civilization's negative impact on the environment has vastly accelerated since the onset of the industrial revolution. Serious environmental contamination now threatens many ecosystems and perhaps ultimately the human race. While some of the most visible urban pollution may have abated, the larger problems of regional and global pollution, particularly by an ever-increasing number of trace contaminants, remain far from solved. While the link has been clearly established between long-range transport of gaseous pollutants and environmental issues such as acid rain, the greenhouse effect, and Arctic haze, the scientist's understanding of the fate of these pollutants in the atmosphere has been constrained by the lack of suitable analytical methods, the complexities of pollution sources, and the volume of potential contaminants involved. This volume offers some of the research tools needed to begin untangling these riddles: appropriate measurement technology, sophisticated analytical techniques, and a better understanding of physical and chemical processes in the atmosphere. Chapters by leading environmental scientists from the world over discuss:. Standard and new methods of sampling and analyzing gaseous contaminants in the atmosphere. The uses of these analytical methods in deciphering material fluxes. The sources, occurrences, and characterization of volatile organic compounds in both indoor and outdoor environments. Gaseous Pollutants will be of great interest to scientists and engineers interested in monitoring air quality; atmospheric chemists studying the behavior and fate of trace contaminants in the air; and anyone concerned with air pollution and pollution control strategies. In addition to presenting a valuable profile of current research results, this book outlines the challenges that lie ahead, pointing students and environmental professionals alike toward important research opportunities in this dynamic field
