Description - The Bioinorganic Chemistry of Chromium by John Vincent

Chromium exists in nature as complexes of two stable oxidation
states ? trivalent chromium(III) and hexavalent
chromium(VI). Although trivalent chromium is required in
trace amounts for sugar and lipid metabolism in humans and its
deficiency may cause a disease called chromium deficiency;
hexavalent chromium is toxic and carcinogenic. As chromium
compounds were used in dyes and paints and the tanning of leather,
these compounds are often found in soil and groundwater at
abandoned industrial sites, now needing environmental cleanup and
remediation.
The Bioinorganic Chemistry of Chromium: From Biochemistry to
Environmental Toxicology takes a critical look at what the
biochemical data indicate about chromium's role in the body and the
biological mechanisms of its toxicology. Topics covered
include:

What do we know about the biochemical roles and mechanisms of
chromium?

Is chromium an essential element in the mammalian diet?

Is chromium(III) effective as a nutraceutical, a therapeutic
agent, and as a supplement in animal feed?

What is the biochemistry behind the toxicology of chromium(III)
and chromium(VI):the mechanisms of metabolism, genetic and
epigenetic effects, and disruption of cell signalling?

What are the current chromium(VI) policies and positions from
regulatory agencies?

The Bioinorganic Chemistry of Chromium: From Biochemistry to
Environmental Toxicology is an important contribution to the
bioinorganic and trace element biochemical fields which will find a
place on the bookshelves of bioinorganic chemists, biochemists,
inorganic chemists, toxicologists, nutritionists and
regulatory affairs professionals.
