CEE 178/276 Human exposure analysis
This quide lists resources to help locate quality literature on exposure to toxic chemical substances, including peer reviewed articles, for students in Human Exposure Analysis and similar courses.
Remember when checking a chemical substance to check by both the name and the chemical formula when searching. It is also possible for names to be in different orders. For example, Indium Gallium Arsenide, Gallium Indium Arsenide, GaInAs, and InGaAs are all valid names for the same chemical substance. Don't forget the American/British spelling issue either: Aluminum or Aluminium or Al, should pick up almost all the papers, but you can miss a lot if you only use one or the other spelling.
Some databases will also allow you to search on the unique CAS registry number. Those numbers can be found on SciFinder or Toxnet, or Google the chemical name and "CAS ID" or "CAS number" to get it from Google.
The Knovel and CRC collections of online handbooks have mutiple titles which cover aspects of chemical exposure. They are good for getting up to speed on particular chemicals or techniques. Sometimes the articles include bibliographies you can mine for further information. The other two listed are standard works which are now available online.
These sources are all listed in the SearchWorks online catalog. Most of these collections of articles do not have full text included, but link out to the articles. If you need a refresher on searching these, check the left sidebar under "Research Skills" for the "Find articles" refresher.
