Hexavalent chromium is a common skin irritant that can cause contact dermatitis in sensitized individuals. Soil samples from two chromium waste sites having different Cr(VI) concentrations were extracted in synthetic sweat solutions over a pH range of 4 to 8 and analyzed for Cr(VI). These extractions were performed to determine the potential availability of Cr(VI) from contaminated soils upon contact with human sweat. The samples were also extracted using the EPA Method 3060 alkaline digestion… CONTINUE READING
