Method is used to determine the concentration of dissolved hexavalent chromium [Cr(VI)] in EP/TCLP characteristic extracts and ground waters. Method A is meant for TCLP extracts and groundwaters for which the hold time is soils there is a separate extraction step before the analytical steps described in A. The Seal of the United States Environmental Protection Agency. EPA Methods A (alkaline extraction) and A (colorimetric measurement) currently constitute a pair of protocols for the measurement of Cr(VI) in.

In addition, 4 albumen and 3 yolk samples were also analyzed. Gizzard is the organ where 7196x food is processed at the initial stage and may contain some Cr VI.

The ion chromatographic value for albumen is around 0. It is well known that liver is the organ where detoxification takes place. A limited number of eggs were obtained from a Dhaka market and their albumen and yolk were analyzed using the same procedure.

The collection, processing, preparation and preliminary physico—chemical characterization of the material are discussed. Search articles by author Stuart J. The test methods page continues to expand and improve. Altogether, 23 chickens were analyzed. Dissolved hexavalent chromium, in the absence of interfering 7196z of substances such as molybdenum, vanadium, and mercury, may be determined colorimetrically by reaction with diphenylcarbazide in acid solution. If you have suggestions for improvement, we would enjoy hearing from you.


From this calculation, it seems obvious that on an average, most people of Bangladesh are taking great risk in consuming chicken and eggs.

Hexavalent Chromium in Chicken and Eggs of Bangladesh

Jump to site search. This may take some time to load. If you are the author of this article you do not need to formally request permission to reproduce figures, diagrams etc. In addition, the samples were kept cool and in the dark during transportation. For the collection of chickens, the cities and ea have been chosen in such a way that they are scattered all over the country of Bangladesh.

If we assume the average amount of Cr VI present in chicken to be 1 ppm, one needs to consume only Brain is small in size and mainly contains lipid.

Mintu Mian, Sample Analyzer. This is in agreement with literature values. Back to tab navigation. Inorganic substances are not that likely to be present in significant quantities. This is an alarming situation.

General Chemistry

The collected samples were brought to the laboratory; they were labeled and stored under proper conditions in a freezer below 4 o C, until they were handled further. Adjustment of pH was checked using a pH meter, model: A redviolet color of unknown composition is produced. They have also determined the amount of total chromium in chickens and eggs [2].

Table 1 shows the results of chicken liver and gizzard. It is seen from the Tables 1 and 2 that average amount of Cr VI present in different body parts of chicken follows the pattern: Thus the accumulation of a toxic substance like Cr VI in liver is easily explained. For spectrophotometric measurements, at least 5 readings were taken for the absorbance of the sample after appropriate spa.


A Sattar, Chief Chemist, Mr. Rochester, New York Laboratory. All the liver samples showed the presence of Cr VIranging from e;a. Flesh is basically protein and contains a lot of moisture.

Digestion of samples was carried out both manually and by using an automatic digester, model: Cr VI has to be eliminated from the feed through appropriate treatments. In order to check the reliability of results obtained through measurement of absorbance of the colored complex, a more sophisticated and reliable experimental technique, namely, Ion Chromatography has been used.

SW-846 Test Method 7196A: Chromium, Hexavalent (Colorimetric)

Both epw A and method have detected small amounts of Cr VI in some albumen and yolk. Hexavalent chromium, being soluble in water, is expected to be ela in flesh in some quantities. The chromium VI content in these two samples are rather low 0.

Journal of Analytical Atomic Spectrometry. Reproduced material should be attributed as follows: Therefore, no absorbance data 7196w been recorded against these samples. The graphs of absorbance versus concentrations were straight lines, the value of R 2 being greater than 0.

The highest value for gizzard is from Chittagong; again the next three values come from Dhaka. The highest value for Cr VI in the liver as found in the present study is in general agreement with literature values [5].

Some samples became colloidal on digestion and as a result, unsuitable for photometric measurements.
