This is a two volume set aimed at examining persistent, bioaccumulative, toxic chemicals that undergo slow environmental degradation in air, water, and soil, bioaccumulate in fish and other organisms, and exhibit a high degree of toxicity. In this volume chapters are devoted to persistence, modeling, and emerging/new chemicals. They also cover a broad international perspectives on measured and calculated properties of PBT's and how these can be/are being used by governments, national, international organizations and industry to select candidate chemicals for possible control. Specific PBT's are highlighted including PCB's, mercury, dioxin, chlorinated paraffins, alkylphenols, synthetic musk fragrances, polychlorinated napthalenes and polybrominated biphenyl ethers.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Consists of 18 papers from a March 1999 symposium that address persistence, modeling, and assessment of persistent, bioaccumulative, and toxic chemicals (PBTs) in the environment, as well as the identification of new members of this class. Some of the topics are the relationship between persistence
and spatial range of environmental chemicals, modeling historical emissions and environmental fate of PCBs in the U.K., a dioxin pollution prevention inventory for the San Francisco Bay, and polybrominated diphenyl ethers in human milk from Sweden."--SciTech Book News
