Explanatory Dictionary of Key Terms in Toxicology, Part II
The objective of the Explanatory Dictionary of Key Terms in Toxicology is to give full explanations of the meaning and usage of toxicological terms chosen for their importance and complexity with regard to the merging of chemistry into toxicology. This requires a full description of the underlying concepts, going beyond a normal dictionary definition. Often linguistic barriers lead to problems in obtaining a common understanding of terminology at an international level and between disciplines. The explanatory comments should help to break down such barriers.
This dictionary is a follow up and continuation of part I published in 2007 (Pure Appl. Chem., 2007, Vol. 79, No. 9, pp. 1583-1633; doi:10.1351/pac200779091583). It consists of a collection of terms chosen from the IUPAC Glossary of Terms Used in Toxicology. These terms are organized under 19 main headings.
