- Vital information drawn from authoritative sources on hazardous chemicals, including chemical properties, toxicity, and synonyms
- Toxic effects indicating reported dominant reproductive effects
The list of reproductively active materials covered here includes drugs, food additives, preservatives, ores, pesticides, dyes, and many other classes of materials. Some of the information also refers to materials of undefined composition. For each entry, the author provides the "DPIM" number, entry name, CAS number, molecular formula, molecular weight, a description of the material, and physical properties. He specifies effects on the male and female reproductive systems, mating success, fetal effects including abortion and transplacental carcinogenesis, and post-birth effects. Each reproductive or teratogenic effect reported includes the dose and species exposed, a brief characterization of the exposure conditions, and a reference to the source of the data. Human effects are presented separately from animal data to highlight the data's importance. With its broad range of crucial, up-to-date information, Reproductively Active Chemicals is an essential sourcebook for professionals in industrial health and safety and related areas. It offers vital information for protecting current and future generations from the dangers of chemical exposure, and will be especially helpful to industrial hygienists and toxicologists, safety and risk managers, loss prevention personnel, and industrial insurers.
