COMMISSION ON TOXICOLOGY
Glossary for chemists of terms used in toxicology
(IUPAC Recommmendations 1993)
Prepared for publication by J.H.
The glossary contains definitions and explanatory notes, if needed,
for over 1200 terms frequently used in the multidisciplinary field
of toxicology. The glossary is compiled primarily for chemists who
now find themselves working in toxicology or requiring a knowledge
of the subject, especially for hazard and risk assessment. Many 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 two annexes, one containing a list
of abbreviations used in toxicology and and one containing a list
of abbreviations used by international bodies and by legislation relevant
to toxicology and chemical safety.
