Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Human exposure to hazardous chemicals occurs in a variety of environments, and most of these exposures occur in indoor environments where people stay for the longest time. Consumer products, tobacco products and household products can release a large number of hazardous chemicals, to which humans can be exposed directly while human use or indirectly via contaminated air or dust. Despite high possibility of exposure, information related to chemical composition in consumer products is often incomplete or unavailable. Therefore, it is very important to quantitatively assess the exposure to these indoor hazardous chemicals and their toxicity.

This Special Issue focuses on the estimation of chemical exposure and the toxicity assessment of indoor hazardous chemicals.  In this Special Issue, we would like to bring readers closer to the state-of-the-art in the field of chemical toxicology by gathering papers that cover important of detrimental effects of these hazardous chemicals in cellular and animal models. In addition, we welcome analytical studies to determine the harmful constituents of consumer products, tobacco products and household products. Authors are invited to submit original research, reviews, short communications, and commentaries.
