The problems involved in evaluating aluminum concentrations in hair are reviewed, especially those concerning removal of contaminating metals, a critical factor. In the few published studies of Al concentrations in hair, acetone was usually used for its removal. Here, its use in the washing sequence was found to give less precise results and higher Al… CONTINUE READING
