The course is aimed at providing the basic information on toxicity of inorganic and organic chemicals, their effect on a human organism, and procedures of toxicity estimation. Furthermore, the course is focused on safety rules for working in chemical laboratories and information sources on dangerous nature of chemicals. Principles of the environment protection are also discussed.
