  • How to Monitor Mercury Emissions

    In recent years, mercury levels in the environment and in the food chain have risen substantially mainly due to human activities. As a long-range pollutant it can affect areas located thousands of kilometers away from its original source of emission. It’s no wonder then that the regulatory pressure to monitor mercury emissions grows stronger.  Before diving ...

  • Mercury Analysis

    Characteristics of Mercury What is Mercury? Mercury is a naturally occurring silver-colored metallic element noted for its occurrence as a liquid at room temperature and toxic to living organisms. This silvery, opaque liquid metal is very dense, yet has a high surface tension that causes it to form tiny perfect spheres in the pores of the rocks it is found in. It is ...

  • The determination of total mercury in whole blood using thermal decomposition and amalgamation coupled with atomic absorption

    Mercury has long been recognized as a serious global pollutant that has a significant impact upon our ecosystem. Unlike most other pollutants, it is highly mobile, nonbiodegradable, and bio-accumulative and as a result has to be closely monitored to ensure its harmful effects on local populations are minimized. Approximately 50 tons of mercury particulates are emitted into the atmosphere every ...
