Short Review of Properties of Organolead Compounds / K. A. Jensen -- Gasoline Additives: Past, Present, and Future / A. Laveskog -- Microbial Methylation of Lead / K. Beijer and A. Jernetov -- Organic Lead in the Aquatic Environment / Y. K. Chau and P. T. S. Wong -- Analysis of Airborne Organic Lead / S. Berg and A. Jonsson -- Atmospheric Occurrence of Organolead Compounds / T. Nielsen -- Toxic Effects in Plant Organisms / G. Roderer -- Metabolism and Toxicokinetics / A. A. Jensen -- Genotoxic Effects / E. Niebuhr and H. C. Wulf -- Induction of Anion Transport in Biological Membranes / P. J. Bjerrum -- Effects on Mitochondria and Other Enzyme Systems / W. N. Aldridge -- Effects on Membrane Formation in the Central Nervous System / J. Clausen -- Effects on Reproduction and Hormone Metabolism / A. Odenbro -- Experimental Pathology of Short-Chain Alkyllead Compounds / A. A. Seawright, A. W. Brown, J. C. Ng, and J. Hrdlicka -- Possible Mechanisms for the Selective Neurotoxicity / J. Cremer -- The Gasoline Sniffing Syndrome / R. A. Keenlyside -- Organolead Exposures and Intoxications / P. Grandjean -- Preventive Measures in the Occupational Setting / J. Gething and G. R. Oxley -- Governmental Regulations / A. A. Jensen and P. Grandjean. The authors of the different chapters of this book have each conducted original research on organolead compounds. Some chapters contain new or hitherto unpublished information. Each chapter is, in my opinion, an outstanding review which may be read and appreciated by itself. Interpretation may vary, however, and this review book attempts to cover major viewpoints, particularly on health significance of organolead exposure.
