Some of the world's leading scientists in fluoride research have contributed to the 49 research and review papers in this book. While different methods for fluoride determination have been known for many years, information concerning the determination of submicrograms of fluoride is lacking. This volume contains articles that describe newly developed techniques used for fluoride determination and their application to the analysis of biological samples. In addition, facts about inorganic fluoride air pollution in several countries and its influence on vegetation, animals, and humans are described. Although the book is primarily directed to investigators in the area of fluoride research, it should be of value to public health officials, medical, dental, and veterinary scientists, ecologists, and environmental scientists.
