Vertigo Dizziness; an illusion of revolving around. Vesiccant Chemical that produces blisters on contact with the skin. The toxicity of a substance is related to its chemical properties. Thus, the biological activity of a compound may be assessed or predicted from its molecular structure. This is known as the structure –activity relationship (SAR). There are many in-depth studies on this subject in the technical literature. Computers are used to perform complex SAR calculations. The toxicity of many common substances or classes of compounds is as follows.

S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) are only in the hundreds — in comparison with the thousands of harmful 5 pollutants that may be present in the environment. GC/MS is the best instrumental technique for compound identification. FTIR and GC–FTIR techniques are equally effective and have been described for the analysis of many pollutants. HPLC analyses are very common for biological monitoring, as well as for several types of air and water analysis. Colorimetric, polarographic, and ion-selective electrode methods have been described for many individual compounds or types of compounds.

Carbamates act similarly; unlike phosphorylation of the enzyme, however, carbamylation is reversible, leading to rapid recovery of enzymatic activity. The toxic effects from carbamate poisoning thus persist for a few hours. The phosphorylated enzyme is hydrolyzed much more slowly, with inhibition lasting several days. Most nitriles are moderate to highly toxic substances. The toxic action is attributed to the presence of the cyanide ( CN) group. Acrylonitrile and acetone cyanohydrin are extremely toxic, as they decompose to hydrogen cyanide in the body.
