[Asbestos substitutes and their biological effects. 2. Synthetic amphiboles--their physico-chemical characteristics].


Metal content in the chemical structure of asbestos and man-made mineral fibres can affect their carcinogenic properties. As the chemical composition (metal content) of man-made silicate substitutes for asbestos can be varied almost at will in the process of their manufacture, the search for potentially least carcinogenic silicates appears to be of utmost… (More)
