Vesiccant Chemical that produces blisters on contact with the skin. The toxicity of a substance is related to its chemical properties. Thus, the biological activity of a compound may be assessed or predicted from its molecular structure. This is known as the structure –activity relationship (SAR). There are many in-depth studies on this subject in the technical literature. Computers are used to perform complex SAR calculations. The toxicity of many common substances or classes of compounds is as follows.

Bronchoconstriction Narrowing of the air passages of the lungs. Chloracne Acne-like eruption caused by exposure to chlorine compounds. Cirrhosis Chronic liver disease caused by chronic ethanol poisoning. Other hepatoxicants may also cause cirrhosis. Conjunctivitis Inflammation of the lining of the eyelids.
