Title: Glossary for toxicokinetics of chemicals

Task Group
Monica Nordberg

Members: Douglas M. Templeton, John H Duffus, and Joachim Seydel

Completion Date: 2004 - project completed

IUPAC has the world authority on chemical nomenclature and terminology and experience in critical evaluation of data. In order to incorporate chemistry and merge toxicology into the terminology used in toxicokinetics in various scientific disciplines there is a need to create a glossary for toxicokinetics of chemicals. The objective of this project is to create a glossary in this field, which would improve the IUPAC impact in a number of scientific fields.

This glossary will give definitions of terminology used in toxicokinetics. The terminology will include information on chemical speciation, the chemistry-speciation for toxic substances, analytical methods, analytical equipment, and biological activity of the chemicals. The glossary will have an appendix and practical examples of situations where toxicokinetic data can be applied.

May 2003 - A draft is submitted to public review for comment until 30 September 2003
