Title: Explanatory dictionary of terms used in toxicology
Duffus and Douglas
To enhance the original dictionary -project
#2003-001-2-700- and add about 20 terms used in toxicokinetics
with full explanations of the meaning and underlying concepts.
In order to incorporate chemistry and merge toxicology into the
terminology used in toxicokinetics in various scientific disciplines,
a project entitled Glossary
for toxicokinetics of chemicals (#2000-034-2-700)
was initiated and the outcome published in 2004 (PAC Vol. 76,
No. 5, pp. 1033-1082).
A related project aimed at creating an Explanatory
Dictionary of Concepts in Toxicokinetics (#2003-001-2-700);
the terms are selected from the 1st glossary and extended explanations
of the concepts underlying the selected terms are proposed.
Following these two projects, a need to explain further terms has
been identified. By doubling the entries in the pilot paper to include
approximately 20 more, the work will be substantial enough to publish
in book form. The task group will prepared the additional text and
reorganize the overall work thematically.
The project consists of about 20 more terms to be explained. The
project is designed to serve the current educational needs of chemists
and other scientists and thus should be of global interest. A list
of terms to be included in part 2 of the explanatory dictionary is
Proposed list of terms to be included in the Explanatory Dictionary
of Terms in Toxicology (part 2):
