Furthermore, phosphorus-containing reactive imine can be used as curing agent and flame retardant in epoxy resins [24], Using this "reactive" type flame retardant in curing process, which incorporates the flame-retardant elements into the epoxy networks by covalent bond, problems of "additive" type flame retardant, which incorporates the flameretardant elements into the epoxy networks by physical blending, can be avoided [29].
The main mechanism of acetaminophen-induced hepatotoxicity is an increase in oxidative stress and subsequent saturation of the glucuronidation and sulfation pathways of hepatic elimination, leading to more APAP being metabolized to N-acetyl-[rho]-benzoquinone imine (NAPQI).
