Mercury Volatility in the Presence of Reducing Agents

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

This document described a laboratory study designed to determine whether mercury is, in fact, reduced by bisulfite ion and ammonia and, if so, whether the reduced mercury is volatilized at the boiling point of water. The primary conclusions resulting from this study are that both bisulfite ion and ammonia are capable of reducing mercury in solution and that, when reduced, the mercury will all be volatilized and carried into the distillate.
