Provides concise, up-to-date articles highlighting the most recent advances in mechanisms of toxicology and the methods for studying them. Examines chemical approaches to the solution of toxicologically interesting problems. Originally published in Chemical Research in Toxicology, the articles convey the opportunity and excitement that exists at the interface of chemistry and toxicology. Twenty-one articles are grouped into four broad categories: Toxic Agents and their Actions; Enzymes of Activation, Inactivation, and Repair; Physical Methods; and Macromolecular Modification.
