Module 06 – Toxicity of Metals
This module is a good introduction to metal toxicity. Students will learn about: toxicity of metals in the body, metal pollution, the difference between metals and metalloids, mechanisms of heavy metal toxicity, and factors that affect metal toxicity. These lecture slides are heavily case-study based and provide an applied outlook on the chemistry with reference to many global incidents and situations. Multiple in-class assignments and student activities can be found within the slides, not in separate documents.
