Contents Notes
This bulletin provides information on hydrogen cyanide and cyanides regarding the following topics: physicochemical characteristics; analytical methods for its detection in air, water, and biological samples (e.g., blood); sources of human and environmental exposure; environmental levels (i.e., air, water, soil, and food) and human exposure (i.e., general population and occupational exposure); absorption, distribution, metabolism/excretion, and monitoring in laboratory animals and humans; toxic effects on laboratory animals and in vitro test systems; toxic effects on humans; and evaluation of health effects.--Publisher's description. Identity and physical/chemical properties -- Analytical methods -- Sources of human and environmental exposure -- Environmental levels and human exposure -- Comparative kinetics and metabolism in laboratory animals and humans -- Effects on laboratory mammals and in vitro test systems -- Effects on humans -- Health effects evaluation -- Previous evaluations by international bodies.
