Tetrachloroethene by Peter Watts ( Book )
8 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 150 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Tetrachloroethene is used mainly in the dry cleaning of textiles, as a chemical intermediate and in metal degreasing. This report evaluates the available scientific literature on the health and environmental effects of tetrachloroethene based on selected national and regional evaluations. Of key interest is the relevance of several types of tumors included by tetrachloroethene in rats and mice. The report goes on to establish the criteria for setting tolerable intakes and concentrations taking into consideration the potential carcinogenicity, neurotoxicity, kidney, liver and reproductive/developmental toxicity and cancer. Environmental effects are assessed for terrestrial and aquatic organisms, sediment-dwelling organisms and micro-organisms in sewerage treatment processes. In addition the risks of harm to plants from air emissions of tetrachloroethene are discussed. Uncertainties in the risk assessment are set out for both human health and the environment.--Publisher's decription
Tin and inorganic tin compounds by Paul Howe ( Book )
7 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 143 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This report examines the health effects of exposure to tin and inorganic tin compounds. Results of studies show that inorganic tin compounds have low toxicity in both aquatic and terrestrial organisms and concentrations showing toxicity to organisms are generally several orders of magnitude higher than those found in the environment.--Publisher's description
Strontium and strontium compounds by Peter Watts ( Book )
8 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 136 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Strontium is released into the environment by natural processes and as a result of human activities. Humans are exposed to strontium via drinking water and via uptake into food plants. Strontium compounds are also used in the manufacture of ceramics and glass products. This Concise International Chemical Assessment Document (CICAD) evaluates the scientific literature on the health and environmental effects of strontium and strontium compounds. This CICAD focuses on the stable isotopes of strontium and the radioactive isotopes of strontium are not reviewed."--Publisher's description
