Multi element neutron activation analysis of human scalp hair a local population survey in the tokyo japan metropolitan area



Multi element neutron activation analysis of human scalp hair a local population survey in the tokyo japan metropolitan area



Journal of Radioanalytical Chemistry 52(1): 167-180



Recently, human hair was proposed as a biological indicator of environmental pollution. Applying instrumental neutron activation analysis, multielement analysis of human hair was carried out to elucidate the levels of various trace element concentrations in hair of local population in the Tokyo metropolitan area. Hair samples [202] were collected from the inhabitants classified by sex and 5 age groups. Using several combinations of irradiation time, cooling time and counting time, 40 elements were quantitatively analyzed. The method of analysis for data including samples under detection limit is discussed, assuming that the frequency distribution of trace element contents in hair is log-normal.
