Title: Environmental chemistry and toxicology of halogenated aromatic compounds.

Abstract: Halogenated aromatic compounds (HAHs) include families of environmental significance such as the polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins (PCDDs), furans (PCDFs), and biphenyls (PCBs), as well as the more recently studied polybrominated diphenyl esters (PBDEs). This talk will cover the following related topics:

  • The origin of these various classes of HAHs in the environment;
  • Aspects of their environmental toxicology;
  • Toxicological interactions between HAHs in the context of the aryl hydrocarbon (Ah) receptor mediated mechanism of signal transduction.
