Bioinorganic Chemistry of Toxic Nickel

Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (ASEN2, volume 26)


More than 110 years ago in Strasbourg T.P.Anderson Stuart has established the science of nickel toxicology providing the first comprehensible survey of the acute toxic effects of nickel salts administered by oral and parenteral routes to various animals. The problems and questions posed by Stuart that time were beginning to be answered only very recently [1].
