Formaldehyde: Exposure, Toxicity and Health Effects (Issues in Toxicology #37) (Hardcover)
Formaldehyde is virtually ubiquitous in the modern environment due to its cost-effective nature, its use in resin formation, and its preservative properties. Though formaldehyde is necessary for many products and processes important to the world's economy, this economic dependence on formaldehyde comes at a cost to public health. Scientific inquiry into formaldehyde exposure has grown in response to this public health problem. This book consolidates these developments and will be a valuable source of information for postgraduates and researchers in environmental and occupational exposure as well as regulators.
