The presence of methylated antimony species has been reported in surface waters, sediments, soils, and biota, mainly detected using hydride generation techniques. Compared to other elements, relatively few studies have been published. Monomethyl-, dimethyl-, and trimethylantimony species have been found, always at very low concentrations. It is important to point out that (i) it has been proved that the identity of some of the published species might be uncertain due to possible artefacts… CONTINUE READING
