Introduction to Toxicology

  • R. A. Scala
Part of the Progress in Analytical Chemistry book series (PAC)


These few remarks are intended to set the stage for the three speakers who will follow. They will include some background on the history of toxicology, a review of the key concepts in this profession, and of the forces shaping investigations in toxicology and will conclude with a recitation of the steps leading to the development of a new chemical material. This generalized introduction will make it easier to follow the more specific and detailed presentations of Drs. Winek, Gibson and Carson.
