Summary
"Since its discovery in 1861, thallium has been used in a variety of industrial products, from rat and ant poisons to photocells and infrared devices. But today, the increased use of thallium for emerging technologies in electronics, medicine, and other fields has also led to rising concerns about the health risks and environmental effects of this highly toxic element." "Thallium in the Environment offers completely up-to-date coverage of the environmental cycle as well as the chemical and toxicological aspects of thallium exposure. Written by an international panel of experts, the book addresses key issues concerning thallium's effects on aquatic and terrestrial environments, human health, and wildlife." "Bringing together the latest information on these areas in a single volume, this book will be welcomed by professionals and students working in environmental science, chemistry, and engineering, as well as toxicology, public health, environmental control, and other areas."--Jacket
