AbstractA successful method was developed for the quantitative separation of biologically incorporated inorganic- and methyl-mercury from animal, fish or higher plant tissues. The differences in animal and plant tissue composition determine the initial treatment of tissues for the highest efficiency of extraction and the subsequent quantitative separation of the mercury species by thin layer chromatography. Thus, animal or fish tissue was treated initially with ethanolic potassium hydroxide solution whereas plant tissue was treated initially with a strong nitric:perchloric acid mixture. Recoveries of both inorganic- and methyl-mercury exceeded 96%.
