Lead and chromium in European road paints.

Lead chromate was commonly employed as a pigment in coloured road markings until restrictions led to the development of safer alternatives. In this study, the presence and concentrations of Pb and Cr

Lead Pollution, Demographics, and Environmental Health Risks: The Case of Philadelphia, USA

A “Lead Index” was developed that took demographics, median measured Pb-in-soil content, and % EBLLs into account to identify ZIP codes in need of further assessment and found strong correlations between factors, such as the percentage of children with elevated blood lead levels and minority population as well as between children in poverty.

Using Community Science to Better Understand Lead Exposure Risks

A straightforward logistic regression model is developed that correctly predicts whether Pb is elevated or low in household dusts 75% of the time and is implemented into an interactive mobile app that aims to increase community‐wide participation with Pb household screening.



Source apportionment and environmental fate of lead chromates in atmospheric dust in arid environments.

Lead chromate detected as a source of atmospheric Pb and Cr (VI) pollution

The dust in Daejeon received a considerable input of anthropogenic pollutants from heavily industrialized Chinese cities, which implies that long-range transported aerosols containing PbCrO4 were a possible source of the lead and hexavalent chromium levels in East Asia.

An investigation of lead chromate (crocoite-PbCrO4) and other inorganic pigments in aged traffic paint samples from Hamilton, Ohio: implications for lead in the environment

Traffic paint samples collected from roads in the City of Hamilton, Butler County, OH, USA were investigated to determine whether or not pigments are hazardous and are of environmental concern.

Lead speciation in indoor dust: a case study to assess old paint contribution in a Canadian urban house

It is confirmed that old paints still contribute to Pb in the settled dust for this 65-year-old home, and the Pb speciation also provided a clearer understanding of the PB bioaccessibility.

A mineralogical and chemical investigation of road dust in Philadelphia, PA, USA

Road dust was investigated within Philadelphia, a major United States city with a long history of industrial activities, in order to determine pollution levels, and found that higher organic content in road dust may be related to higher traffic densities, which could be due to tire-wear particles.
