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.

Yolk and albumen of some eggs have also been analyzed for their Cr VI content. Sc in Environment Management. Altogether, 23 chickens were analyzed. Fetching data from CrossRef. Chittagong holds the top position for flesh, followed closely by Rajshahi. USEPA Method A is an alkaline digestion procedure for extracting hexavalent chromium from soluble, absorbed, and precipitated forms of chromium compounds in soils, sludge, sediments, and similar waste materials.

The highest value for Cr VI in the liver as found in the present study is in general agreement with literature values [5]. The graphs of absorbance versus concentrations were straight lines, the value of R 2 being greater than 0. For spectrophotometric measurements, at least 5 readings were taken for the absorbance of the sample after appropriate treatment. If you are not the author of this article and you wish to reproduce material from it in a third party non-RSC publication you must formally request permission using Copyright Clearance Center.

Development of a standard reference material for Cr VI in contaminated soil.

Hexavalent Chromium in Chicken and

Dhaka has the highest value for brain. Most of the high values of Cr VI have come from chickens of relatively mature age 1 year and abovebut there are exceptions. Addition of an excess of diphenylcarbazide yields the red-violet product, and its absorbance is measured photometrically at nm.


The third option of stopping altogether the production of poultry feed from solid tannery waste may not be economically attractive. It must be mentioned, however, that the information about the age of a chicken was obtained from whom the chickens were bought and is likely to be inferred rather than accurate.

Previous authors have found the prevalence of heavy metals like lead, chromium, arsenic, mercury, etc. This is an epw situation. Information about reproducing material from RSC articles with different licences is available on our Permission Requests page. The chromium VI content in these two samples are rather low 0. XX is 7196 XXth reference in the list of references. Detection limit for the instrument was 0. Thus the accumulation of a toxic substance like Cr VI in liver is easily explained.

If we assume the average amount of Cr VI present in chicken to be 1 ppm, one needs to consume only If you are the author of this article you do not need to formally request permission to reproduce figures, diagrams etc. As the poultry feed that is manufactured from tannery waste of Dhaka is distributed all throughout the country, it would be interesting to.


From this calculation, it seems obvious that on an average, dpa people of Bangladesh are taking great risk in consuming chicken and eggs. Therefore, no absorbance data have been recorded against these samples. Simi Valley, California Laboratory.

The highest value for gizzard is from Chittagong; again the next three values come from Dhaka. This method may also be applicable to certain domestic and industrial wastes, provided that no interfering substances are present.

In addition to liver, other body parts of chicken such as gizzard, flesh and brain have been brought under investigation.

This is in agreement with literature values. This may take some time fpa load.


Table 1 shows the results of chicken liver and gizzard. EPA Method uses ion chromatography to separate the chromate ion from other species by passing through a chromatographic column. Special thanks are due to Mr. 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.

The graph of concentration versus area was a straight line with R-values being 0.

Summit Environmental Testing | CHROMIUM, HEXAVALENT

H 2 SO 4 was added to make the medium acidic. The experimental set-up was calibrated with respect to standard solutions of K 2 Cr 2 O 7.

Only a limited number of eggs from Dhaka have been analyzed. For reproduction of material from PCCP: This is expected in view of the fact that reduction of Cr VI occurs when reducing material from the matrix reacts with Cr VI during the neutralization process. Consolidated results for liver, gizzard, flesh, brain and eggs have been given in Tables 1, 2 and 3. Ion chromatograph was from Shimadzu, Japan. A two-phase multi-laboratory testing study was carried out to provide data on material homogeneity 796a to assess the stability of the material over the duration of the study.

Standard solutions of potassium dichromate were used to calibrate the spectrophotometers. Rochester, New York Laboratory. For reproduction of material from PPS: Reproduced material should be attributed as follows: Over the last several decades, considerable contamination by hexavalent chromium has resulted from the land disposal of Chromite Ore Processing Residue COPR.
