The Determination of Mercury and Organic Mercurials in Biological Samples

Abstract

Abstract The method of Magos and Cernik (1969), in which mercury in urine is determined by aspirating the vapour through an ultraviolet absorptiometer after reduction with stannous chloride, has been investigated and modified for biological samples other than urine. By making use of the varying lability of organic mercurials in the presence of acid cysteine, it has been possible to extend the method to distinguish between organic and inorganic mercury, and to some extent between the various groups of organic mercurials. The methods have been shown to be satisfactory for the analysis of urine, faeces, blood and kidney tissue. Copyright © 1970 The British Occupational Hygiene Society
