Simultaneous determination of mercury speciation in biological materials by GC/CVAFS after ethylation and room-temperature precollection.

Abstract

We developed a method for the simultaneous determination of monomethyl mercury (MMHg), inorganic mercury [Hg(II)], and total mercury (THg) in biological materials. A variety of biological materials can be digested in methanolic KOH solution. The MMHg and Hg(II) present are converted to volatile ethyl derivatives, methylethyl mercury and diethyl mercury, by… (More)
