The ability of rabbit alveolar macrophages to dissolve two arsenic compounds, 74As-labeled lead arsenate and arsenic trisulfide, was studied in vitro. The solubilities in water of these two compounds are related differently to pH. The solubility of lead arsenate increases and that of arsenic trisulfide decreases with decreasing pH. The radiolabeled… CONTINUE READING
