Chromium exists in nature as complexes of 2 strong oxidation states – trivalent chromium(III) and hexavalent chromium(VI). even if trivalent chromium is needed in hint quantities for sugar and lipid metabolism in people and its deficiency can cause a sickness referred to as chromium deficiency; hexavalent chromium is poisonous and carcinogenic. As chromium compounds have been utilized in dyes and paints and the tanning of leather-based, those compounds are frequently present in soil and groundwater at deserted business websites, now desiring environmental cleanup and remediation.
The Bioinorganic Chemistry of Chromium: From Biochemistry to Environmental Toxicology takes a serious examine what the biochemical information point out approximately chromium's position within the physique and the organic mechanisms of its toxicology. issues coated include:
- What will we learn about the biochemical roles and mechanisms of chromium?
- Is chromium a vital point within the mammalian diet?
- Is chromium(III) powerful as a nutraceutical, a healing agent, and as a complement in animal feed?
- What is the biochemistry at the back of the toxicology of chromium(III) and chromium(VI):the mechanisms of metabolism, genetic and epigenetic results, and disruption of telephone signalling?
- What are the present chromium(VI) guidelines and positions from regulatory agencies?
The Bioinorganic Chemistry of Chromium: From Biochemistry to Environmental Toxicology is a vital contribution to the bioinorganic and hint point biochemical fields on the way to discover a position at the bookshelves of bioinorganic chemists, biochemists, inorganic chemists, toxicologists, nutritionists and regulatory affairs professionals.
