Levels of antimony arsenic cadmium copper lead mercury selenium silver tin and zinc in bone tissue of industrially exposed workers



Levels of antimony arsenic cadmium copper lead mercury selenium silver tin and zinc in bone tissue of industrially exposed workers



Science of the Total Environment 16(2): 109-116



Contents of Sb, Ar, Cd, Cu, Pb, Hg, Se, Ag, Sn and Zn in bone tissue from autopsy specimens of the femur of workers who were exposed to a large number of metals in a smeltery and refinery in Northern Sweden and a control group were quantitatively assayed. Analytical techniques used were atomic absorption spectrophotometry, neutron activation analysis and particle induced X-ray emission analysis (PIXE) in a proton microprobe. Increased levels of Pb in bone tissue of exposed workers compared to a non-exposed control group were observed. The median level of Pb in the group of exposed workers exceeded corresponding value of the control group about 5 times. Using the proton microprobe in the PIXE-mode, concentration profiles of Cu, Pb and Zn were examined within the Haversian system of bone samples.
