Jagtap, Rajani; Krikowa, F; Maher, William; Foster, Simon; Ellwood, Michael


A procedure for the extraction and determination of methyl mercury and mercury (II) in fish muscle tissues and sediment samples is presented. The procedure involves extraction with 5% (v/v) 2-mercaptoethanol, separation and determination of mercury species by HPLC-ICPMS using a Perkin-Elmer 3 μm C8 (33 mm × 3 mm) column and a mobile phase 3 containing 0.5% (v/v) 2-mercaptoethanol and 5% (v/v) CH3OH (pH 5.5) at a flow rate 1.5 ml min-1 and a temperature of 25 °C. Calibration curves for methyl...[Show more]
