Resistogram typing was performed by disk diffusion against a panel of 6 chemicals and dyes: cadmium acetate (10 mmol/L), sodium arsenate (0.2 [micro]mol/L), ethidium bromide (15 mmol/L), propamidine isethionate (2% [wt/vol]), mercuric chloride (0.4 [micro]mol/L), and phenylmercuric acetate
(5 mmol/L) as previously described (19,20).
During the development of a spectrophotometric determination of urea with diacetyl monoxime, Douglas and Bremner (1970a) showed that addition of 5 [micro]g/g of silver sulfate, mercuric chloride, or phenylmercuric acetate
Ingredients like shellac and quaternium-22 can induce contact allergies; others, such as phenylmercuric acetate
, may cause blisters.
The bases were extracted by a laborious double-step extraction with toxic phenylmercuric acetate
(PMA) into toluene.
Investigators discovered the boy had inhaled mercury vapor from interior walls covered with water-based (latex) paint containing phenylmercuric acetate
, a mercury-laden preservative.
The Michigan Department of Public Health (MDPH) identified inhalation of mercury-containing vapors from phenylmercuric acetate
contained in latex paint as the probable route of mercury exposure for the family; 17 gallons of paint had been applied to the inside of the family's home during the first week of July.
