About this title


In the tradition that has made these volumes an industry classic, this edition offers in-depth, comprehensive and timely coverage of cutting-edge issues and innovations in the field. This latest revision features 18 new subjects including visual display terminal safety, biological agents in the workplace, indoor air pollution and design of analytical laboratories. These new additions build on the existing broad coverage of industrial hygiene as both a science and an art, devoted to the recognition, evaluation and control of environmental factors and stresses affecting the health of all workers.

From the Inside Flap:

The Fourth Edition of Patty’s Industrial Hygiene and Toxicology, Volume 2 is the most comprehensive compilation of industrial toxicology produced to date. Representing the collected work of some of the world’s leading toxicologists, this new edition is a thorough, all-inclusive compendium of chemicals that pose a potential threat to the health and safety of workers and the community. Expanded to six books containing a total of 46 chapters covering thousands of chemicals, the Fourth Edition reflects an intense proliferation in research and interest surrounding public health issues since the Third Edition was published twelve years ago. The second book (B) of Volume 2 continues the detailed examination begun in book A of the host of toxins common to the modern industrial workplace. The book’s systematic, chapter-by-chapter analysis includes:

  • Aromatic nitro and amino compounds
  • Aliphatic and alicyclic amines
  • Fluorine-containing organic compounds
  • Aliphatic hydrocarbons
  • Alicyclic hydrocarbons
  • Aromatic hydrocarbons
  • Halogenated benzenes
  • Chlorinated hydrocarbon insecticides
  • Phenols and phenolic compounds
Faithful to Frank Patty’s original vision of a convenient, comprehensive field reference that blends timely coverage with cutting-edge research, the new Fourth Edition of Toxicology is now more practical and authoritative than ever. Toxicologists, industrial hygienists, and physicians, among other scientists, will find these six books of Volume 2 useful in pursuing particular areas of interest. Indispensable in an era of heightened concern over worker and workplace health and safety, Part 2B: Toxicology is an irreplaceable reference for the professional interested in keeping abreast of the practical dangers of industrial and community toxins.
