TY - CHAP A1 - Rebeca Monroy-Torres ED1 - Margarita Stoytcheva ED2 - Roumen Zlatev Y1 - 2018-07-25 PY - 2018 T1 - Food and Water Security as Determinants of the Mitigation of Health Risks Due to Exposure to Arsenic in Water N2 - Arsenic - Analytical and Toxicological Studies is a collection of original works focused on arsenic occurrence and chemistry, methods for arsenic determination and removal and arsenic toxicity and health risks. The most commonly used techniques for arsenic quantification and speciation, such as atomic absorption spectrometry, inductively coupled plasma-mass spectrometry, and inductively coupled plasma-emission spectrometry, among others, and the various procedures applied for arsenic separation and removal are exhaustively described. The mechanism of arsenic-induced toxicology, involving arsenic interaction with critical thiols in proteins and the health risks associated with exposure to arsenic, is also discussed.
