About this book

Chemical Exposure Predictions discusses the challenges of analyzing biological cycles of various chemical substances and evaluating their potential exposure. The book examines physico-chemical properties, the possibilities for predicting degradation, and partition coefficients and kinetics of distribution phenomena. It also covers how to validate predictions and presents examples of hazard assessment.
