Fluorine Chemistry, Volume III: Biological Effects of Organic Fluorides focuses on the biological threats of fluorine-containing compounds.
The book first looks at the toxicity of fluoroacetate. Acute human poisoning, chemical factors, cause of death, pharmacological properties, evidence of fluorocitrate, and sites of inhibition are discussed. The text notes the biological effects of phosphofluoridates. Toxicity of DFP and derivatives, DFP metabolism, studies on DFP32 metabolism, and enzymes hydrolyzing DFP are described. The book also looks at the effects of acute doses of fluorine-containing organic compounds. The effects of organic fluorine compounds on enzyme systems; metabolic effects of tyrosine analogs; local anesthetics; effects of organofluorine compounds on microorganisms; and miscellaneous pharmacological effects of organic fluorides are discussed.
The text underscores the acute effects of organofluorine compounds in experimental animals. Tabulated representations that show the effects of fluorine-containing compounds on humans and animals are presented.
The book is a valuable source of information for readers wanting to study the biological effects of fluorine-containing compounds.
