Uncommon heavy metals, metalloids
and their plant toxicity: A review.
The presence of the metalloid
boron, in this case, results in forming localized p-d type connections that reduce the number of polarizable-orbital rotation in the d orbital of the cobalt atoms and niobium .
Of the heavy metals and metalloid
salts, the NaAsLL solution resulted in the highest EC and CuS[O.sub.4] solution resulted in the lowest EC.
Arsenic is a colorless tasteless and naturally present metalloid
element found in water air and soil (Han et al.
Table I.- One-way analysis of variance of metal and metalloid
in soil at different sites.
The biological effects of Se mostly depend on the incorporation of this metalloid
into selenoproteins in the form of the amino acid selenocysteine (6).
Those elements may combine with the element boron (a metalloid
chemical element with atomic number 5 and the chemical symbol B).
Antimony is a metalloid
element that has been in increased demand in recent years for applications in microelectronics.
Arsenic - a metalloid
element - is a natural part of earth's crust at some places.
Arsenic is a ubiquitous metalloid
that is introduced in to the environment from both anthropogenic and geochemical sources (Smith et al., 1998).
These findings suggest that the analysis of a small number of urine samples may he adequate to estimate an individual's exposure to InAs from drinking water and that the determination of the concentration of As in a drinking water supply may he a useful surrogate for estimating exposure to this metalloid
