1. Fate and exposure -- 2. Assessment and new chemicals. This work is "aimed at examining persistent, bioaccumulative, toxic chemicals that undergo slow environmental degradation in air, water, and soil, bioaccumulate in fish and other organisms, and exhibit a high degree of toxicity. This volume examines the fate and behavior of these chemicals, and their food chain transfer and exposure. Chapters cover recent research results and reviews related to polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), butyltin, toxaphene, dioxin, alpha-hexachlorocyclohexane and mercury."--Publisher.
