BISAC: SCI013000

Formaldehyde (FA) is a highly reactive compound with a toxic effect on all organisms due to non-specific interactions with proteins and nucleic acids. This substance is a hazardous air pollutant, and prolonged exposure to FA may cause serious health effects. This book discusses the synthesis of formaldehyde, its applications and potential health effects. (Imprint: Nova)
