Method is used to determine the concentration of dissolved hexavalent chromium [Cr(VI)] in EP/TCLP characteristic extracts and ground waters. Method A is meant for TCLP extracts and groundwaters for which the hold time is soils there is a separate extraction step before the analytical steps described in A. The Seal of the United States Environmental Protection Agency. EPA Methods A (alkaline extraction) and A (colorimetric measurement) currently constitute a pair of protocols for the measurement of Cr(VI) in.

Yolk and albumen of some eggs have also been analyzed for their Cr VI content.

In all cases the Ref. The experimental set-up was calibrated with respect to standard solutions of K 2 Cr 2 O 7. To check the reliability of ela spectrophotometric method Awe have also used a more sophisticated and sensitive technique of Ion Chromatography EPA method [11] for the measurement of Cr VI in some samples.

A Sattar, Chief Chemist, Mr. In addition to liver, other body parts of chicken such as gizzard, flesh and brain have been brought under investigation.

Search articles 7196w author Stuart J. The mean and the standard deviation were calculated using the Excel program. Some samples became colloidal on digestion and as a result, unsuitable for photometric measurements.

This may take some time to load. The study was designed to incorporate several United States Environmental Protection Agency USEPA determinative methods for hexavalent chromium, including Method which is based on speciated isotope dilution mass spectrometry SIDMSan approach which can account for chromium species inter-conversion during the extraction and measurement sequence. The graphs of absorbance versus concentrations were straight lines, the value of R 2 being greater than 0. Altogether, 23 chickens were analyzed.

719a6 must be mentioned, however, that 7196s information about the age of a chicken was obtained from whom the chickens were bought and is likely to be inferred rather than accurate. Epw is expected in view of the fact that reduction rpa Cr VI occurs when reducing material from the matrix reacts with Cr VI during the neutralization process.

Hexavalent chromium, being soluble in water, is expected to be present in flesh in some quantities. The chromium content of the same sample was measured using both the techniques and the results are spa in Table 4 and in Fig.


This is then allowed to react with DPC and the absorbance is measured with a spectrophotometer. Please contact us for assistance.

The ion chromatographic value for albumen is around 0. A redviolet color of unknown composition is produced. To prevent Cr VI from entering the food chain, either or both of the following steps may be taken: Development of a standard reference material for Cr 7169a in contaminated soil S.

It is seen from the Tables 1 and 2 that average amount of Cr VI present in different body parts of chicken follows the pattern: The article was received on 22 Mayaccepted on 12 Aug and first published on 29 Sep
