The variation of trace element concentration in human hair: the trace element profile in human long hair by sectional analysis using neutron activation analysis



The variation of trace element concentration in human hair: the trace element profile in human long hair by sectional analysis using neutron activation analysis



Science of the Total Environment 38: 41-54



Neutron activation analysis was used to determine the distribution of trace elements in human hair. Hair samples were obtained from 5 infants (2-7 yr of age) with hair length ranging from 15-40 cm. The hairs were divided into 2.5 cm segments starting from the scalp end and trace elements were analyzed in each segment. Concentrations of I, Mg, Ca and Cu increased from the scalp end to the tip. Concentrations of Cl and Br decreased inversely. Different profiles of the concentrations of Hg, Se, Ca and Mn were seen in each sample. These results were discussed with reference to the indication of environmental pollution.
