Contents Notes
Identity and physical/chemical properties -- Analytical methods -- Sources of human and environmental exposure -- Environmental transport, distribution and transformation -- 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 -- Effects on other organisms in the laboratory and field -- Effects evaluation -- Previous evaluations byb IOMC bodies. This report examines the health effects of exposure to tin and inorganic tin compounds. Results of studies show that inorganic tin compounds have low toxicity in both aquatic and terrestrial organisms and concentrations showing toxicity to organisms are generally several orders of magnitude higher than those found in the environment.--Publisher's description.
