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.

Chromium, Hexavalent Report Number: This means that about g per week will exceed this limit. Search articles by author Stuart J. Cr VI has to be eliminated from the feed through appropriate treatments.

Hexavalent Chromium in Chicken and Eggs of Bangladesh

For reproduction of material from PPS: They have also determined the amount of total chromium in chickens and eggs [2]. In all cases the Ref. Back to tab navigation. For reproduction of material from all other RSC journals and books: From this calculation, it seems obvious that on an average, most people of Bangladesh are taking great risk in consuming chicken and eggs.

To prevent Cr VI from entering the food chain, either or both of the 71196a steps may be taken: Previous Article Next Article.

Dissolved hexavalent chromium, in the 1796a of interfering amounts of substances such as molybdenum, vanadium, and mercury, may be determined colorimetrically by reaction with diphenylcarbazide in acid solution.


The details of procedure have been described elsewhere [10]. The sample was digested in the automatic digester, where the parameters like temperature, pressure and time of digestion were fixed beforehand. Only a limited number of eggs from Dhaka have been analyzed. Chittagong holds the top position for flesh, followed closely by Rajshahi. Please contact the webmaster here. To check the reliability of the spectrophotometric method Awe have also used a more sophisticated and sensitive technique of Ion Chromatography EPA method [11] for the measurement of Cr VI in some samples.


Barishal has the highest value for liver and the next two amounts come from Dhaka. Method A is supposed to meet these criteria for most solid matrices. The chromium VI content in these two samples are rather low 0.

Journal of Analytical Atomic Spectrometry. 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: In addition, 4 albumen and 3 yolk samples were also analyzed. All the liver samples showed the presence of Cr VIranging from 0.

Methanol was of HPLC grade. Poultry feed, manufactured from solid tannery waste of Hazaribag, is distributed throughout the country. Addition of an excess of diphenylcarbazide yields the red-violet product, and its absorbance is measured photometrically at nm.

In addition, 4 albumen and 3 yolk samples have also been analyzed. The ion chromatographic value for albumen is around 0. Concern over the carcinogenic potential of this chromium species, and its environmental mobility, has resulted in efforts to remediate these waste sites.

The experimental set-up was epq with respect to standard solutions of K 2 Cr 2 O 7. Yolk and 7916a of some eggs have also been analyzed for their Cr VI content. The graph of concentration versus area was a straight line with R-values being 0. As the poultry feed that is manufactured from tannery waste of Dhaka is distributed all throughout the country, it would be interesting to. Previous authors have found the prevalence of heavy metals like lead, chromium, arsenic, mercury, etc.

For spectrophotometric measurements, at least 5 readings were taken for the absorbance of the sample after appropriate treatment. If you have suggestions for improvement, we would enjoy hearing from you. Development of a standard reference material for Cr VI in contaminated soil. The two most eoa circulated newspapers of Bangladesh, The Daily Star [3], and the Prothom Alo [4] have run articles on the subject. If we assume the average amount 7196q Cr VI present in chicken to be 1 ppm, one needs to consume only Gizzard is the organ where the food is processed at the initial rpa and may contain some Cr VI.


If you are the author of this article you do not need to formally request permission to reproduce figures, diagrams etc. The graphs of absorbance versus concentrations were straight lines, the value of R 2 being greater than 0. Authors contributing to RSC publications journal articles, books or book chapters do not need to formally request permission to reproduce material contained in this article provided that the correct acknowledgement is given with the reproduced material.

Go to our Instructions for using Copyright Clearance Center page for details. Dhaka has the highest value for brain. Hexavalent chromium, being soluble in water, is expected to be present in flesh in some quantities. Age of the chicken seems to be an important factor in the accumulation of Cr VI in different body parts. For the collection of chickens, the cities and towns have been chosen in such a way that they are scattered all over the country of Bangladesh. The test methods page continues to expand and improve.

H 2 SO 4 was added to make the medium acidic. Thus, to determine chromium VI in solid matrices, 3 criteria must be satisfied: In addition, the samples were kept cool and in the dark during transportation.
