Concentrations of Hg and other metals such as Ag, Cr, Co and Ni in soft tissues and byssi of the blue mussel (Mytilus edulis) from three sites along the east coast of Kyushu Island, Japan, were determined by a cold-vapor technique. Large inter-regional differences in metal concentrations in both soft tissues and byssi were observed. The tissue(More)
The paper contains the results of 19 minerals (Ca, K, P, Na, Mg, Zn, Fe, Mn, Cu, F, Ni, Co, Cr, Li, Sr, Al, Cd, Hg, Pb) determined in green and black species of market teas. The examined minerals (except phosphorus, fluoride and mercury) were determined by ASA-method using air-acetylene flame (aluminium was determined in the nitrous oxide-acetylene flame).(More)
The strontium, lithium and calcium contents have been determined in 87 samples of five kinds of milk-fermented products, as well as in 93 samples of ten kinds of marine smoked fish. The samples were purchased on the local market. The representative samples were dry ashed in quartz crucibles and the ash was treated with suitable amounts of conc. HCl and a(More)
Concentrations of Cd, Pb, Zn, Cu, Ni, Co, Cr, Mn and Fe in the soft tissue of Turbo coronatus, Acanthopleura haddoni, Ostrea cucullata and Pitar sp., as well as in associated surface sediments (bulk and bioavailable metal concentrations) from the Gulf of Aden, Yemen, were determined by atomic absorption spectrophotometry method. Large differences between(More)
The levels of aluminium and fluoride have been determined in hospital daily diets including breakfast, dinner and supper, as well as in black teas and herbal teas purchased from the local market. In tea, aluminium was determined directly in a sample solution by atomic absorption spectroscopy using nitrous oxide and an acetylene flame. For analysis of the(More)
There are presented the results of the investigation of many popular fresh and frozen vegetables as well as in fresh and frozen fruits, such as different kind of apples, strawberries, currants, raspberries and many other tender fruits mainly from market and few from own allotment-cottages performed in the year 1989-1992. The nitrate and nitrite was(More)
