This article specializes in the organic interactions of sulphur compounds which come up in particular from the presence of the sulphur atom in the molecule. The ebook opens with introductory chapters at the chemistry and biology of sulphur, prior to tackling the sector by way of introducing compounds which proportion a standard chemical mixture. as a rule, following an outline of the makes use of and impression upon the organic box, particular chemical staff features are mentioned including the organic job and structure-activity relationships the place recognized. The toxicity of such compounds, their effects in biochemical and scientific phrases, and their mechanisms of organic interplay are then addressed.
