Mercury is a silvery white liquid metal that is volatile at room temperature due to its high vapour pressure. It exists in different oxidation states and can form a number of compounds. Mercury and its compounds can be absorbed into the human body by inhalation, ingestion, and through the skin. It is toxic when certain threshold values are exceeded. Acute toxicity is due to the inactivation of enzymes by the heavy metal, which leads to interstitial pneumonitis, ulcerative gastro-enteritis, or… Expand
