The present review is an attempt to correlate various toxic effects produced by the chemicals in order to better understand and appreciate their behavior. The subjects covered in this article have lately enjoyed great interest and a rapidly growing number of scientific reports are available. Since a number of the chemicals discussed produce similar or related effects, their toxicology is discussed together rather than listing each compound separately, which would have led to a great deal of repetition. A detailed discussion of the various chemical reactions, analytical methods for the determination of the compounds, is not given. The review has been written with the toxic effects of the various compounds as the focal point and the literature cited serves to illustrate these points. No attempt has been made to present a complete review of the literature in this area.
