LEAD AND CADMIUM CONTENT IN WASHED AND UNWASHED WOOL OF SHEEP REARED IN REGIONS WITH INCREASED TECHNOGENIC CLARC
2008, 9 (2) p. 305-310
An ICP-ETAAS analyze of unwashed and washed sheep- wool for establishing of Pb and Cd have been conducted. A signifi cant difference in the contents of Pb (15.3- unwashed versus 8.15 mg/kg DM– washed wool) were established. The Cd – content were mean 0.69 (unwashed) versus 0.53 mg/kg DM– washed wool. No statistical differences were established. The authors conclude, that the environment infl uence signifi cant on the Pb- content of sheep- wool.
