The feasibility of wavelength dispersive X-ray fluorescence spectrometry for the assessment of lead concentration in animal bone powder

Author affiliations

Abstract

This work demonstrates the feasibility of wavelength dispersive X-ray fluorescence for the assessment of lead in animal bone powder. When applied to real bone samples, this analytical procedure produced results compatible with current knowledge of lead metabolism, emerging as an important tool in the investigation of relevant issues in Public Health.
