  • Tellurium (Te) demonstrates properties similar to those of elements known to be toxic to humans, and has applications in industrial processes, which are rapidly growing in importance and scale. It is relevant, therefore, to consider the tellurium physiology, toxicity, and methods for monitoring the element in biological and environmental specimens. Animal studies suggest that up to 25% of orally administered tellurium is absorbed in the gut. There is a biphasic elimination from the circulation… CONTINUE READING
