The basic and applied toxicology of cyanides and cyanogens has widespread commercial, occupational, environmental, clinical, forensic, military, and public health implications. This book provides a detailed and updated reference describing the properties, uses, general and human toxicology, clinical recognition, diagnosis and medical management, and countermeasures is therefore required in academic, medical, occupational, environmental, medico-legal, regulatory, emergency response, and military arenas. Edited by a world-renowned team of experts from academia, defense and industry, this book will be an invaluable reference for professionals, researchers and students in cyanide and cyanogens.
• This comprehensive up-to-date reference will serve as a compendium of information on cyanide and cyanide-related compounds.
• Reviews all aspects of cyanide toxicology and gives detailed accounts of its effects on different organ systems.
• Describes the biochemical basis and mechanisms of cyanide poisoning and the development of new antidotes and analytical procedures.
• Covers accidental cyanide poisoning, both at work and in the home, as well as deliberate use of cyanides in warfare, murder, and suicide.
• Describes cyanogens, their sources, mode of action, and treatments in addition to a detailed compendium of the major naturally occurring cyanogens.
Edited by a world-renowned team of experts in academia, defense and industry. This book is an invaluable reference for professionals; researchers and students in environmental, medical, and forensic toxicology; risk management; chemical warfare and defense.
