Investigations of the existing chemical forms and the concentrations of arsenic (As), selenium (Se) and antimony (Sb) in samples of fly ash obtained from six coal-fired power stations in various countries were carried out. The concentration of As was found to vary from 5.4 to 22.3 mg kg(-1), and the most common mode of occurrence of As in the fly ashes is(More)
Acetylcholinesterase activity was measured in rectal-biopsy specimens obtained from nineteen children. Seven children in whom the diagnosis of Hirschsprung's disease was established were found to have a significantly higher enzyme activity than the twelve in whom this diagnosis was excluded. The estimation may prove to be of value in the diagnosis of(More)
A basic investigation of boron in discharged fly ash by coal fuel thermal power plants in several worldwide locations was carried out. Eight kinds of fly ash sample were prepared from eight coal fuel thermal power plants. Two of the fly ash samples were used to examine the relationship between the concentration of boron in fly ash and the particle size.(More)
The concentrations of chromium (III) and (VI) in fly ash from nine Australian coal fired power stations were determined. Cr(VI) was completely leached by extraction with 0.01 M NaOH solution and the concentration was determined by inductively coupled plasma atomic emission spectrometry (ICP-AES). This was confirmed by determining Cr(III) and Cr(VI) in the(More)
A method is described for the assay of acetylcholinesterase in tissue samples using the selective cholinesterase inhibitor, lysivane (10-(alpha-diethylaminopropyl) phenothiazine hydrochloride). Significantly increased enzyme activity is found in rectal biopsy specimens from patients with Hirschsprung's disease (p less than 0.001) indicating the diagnostic(More)
