Contents Notes
Sources and fates of polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins, dibenzofurans and biphenyls / Stuart J. Harrad -- Human exposure to dioxin / Curtis C. Travis and April G. Nixon -- Biological uptake and transfer to polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins and dibenzofurans / Michael S. McLachlan -- Atmospheric chemistry of PCBs, PCDDs and PCDFs / Roger Atkinson -- Human toxicology of chlorinated organic micropollutants / Stephen Safe -- Ecotoxicology of chlorinated aromatic hydrocarbons / Pim de Voogt -- Chlorinated pesticides / Alan Turnbull -- Studies of polychlorinated biphenyls in the Great Lakes / Deborah L. Swackhamer -- Control of PCDD and PCDF emissions from waste combustors / Gev H. Eduljee and Peter Cains. Chlorinated Organic Micropollutants addresses the sources, environmental cycles, uptake, consequences and control of many of the more important chlorinated organic micropollutants, including PCBs, PCDDs, PCDFs and various chlorinated pesticides, all of which have given widespread cause for concern in relation to their environmental persistence and high toxicity, and their potential for adverse effects on humans and wildlife. Rational decision making over chlorinated organic micropollutants in the environment must be based upon sound science. This issue draws upon the expertise of some of the most distinguished workers in the field, to review current knowledge of the sources, environmental concentrations and pathways, human toxicity and ecotoxicology, and control methods for these groups of compounds.
