Fast and reliable analytical methods for mercury speciation would aid in understanding mercury offgas chemistry. Presently, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulates only total mercury; however, many studies indicate that mercury toxicity is highly dependent on the mercury speciation. For example, amalgams and mercury sulfides have relatively low toxicities, while organomercury and halogenated organomercury compounds, apparently through the action of the methylmercury ion, CH3Hg… CONTINUE READING
