A simple analytical technique for the determination of hexavalent chromium in welding fumes and other complex matrices

Scandinavian Journal of Work, Environment & Health
E Thomsen, R M Stern


A systematic study of analytical methods for the determination of hexavalent chromium showed that currently existing techniques are unsatisfactory when used with welding fumes, the s-diphenylcarbazide method proposed by the U.S. National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health permitting less than 1% recovery of hexavalent chromium from synthetic welding fumes of known composition. A new (carbonate leaching) technique is proposed which permits better than 80% recovery of both soluble and insoluble chromium (VI). This technique is then used as part of a general method for the determination of total chemical composition as distributed among sample fractions of different solubility. The method is specifically designed for use in the analysis of small samples and is especially suitable for the routine evaluation of health risks as found in the work environment.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Synthetic Genetic Array Analysis

Synthetic genetic arrays allow the systematic examination of genetic interactions. Here is the latest research focusing on synthetic genetic arrays and their analyses.

Congenital Hyperinsulinism

Congenital hyperinsulinism is caused by genetic mutations resulting in excess insulin secretion from beta cells of the pancreas. Here is the latest research.
