Abstract  

Chromium is one of the most difficult elements to accurately determine at the naturally occuring, ultratrace levels normally found in uncontaminated biological samples. In view of the importance of Cr, both as an essential and as a toxic element, efforts have focused on developing a simple, yet reliable, radiochemical procedure for Cr determination using neutron activation analysis. A number of problem areas have been identified in earlier methods, and an improved radiochemical separation procedure, based upon the liquid/liquid extraction of Cr(VI) into a solution of tribenzylamine/chloroform, has been developed. The fast neutron interference from Fe has been evaluated for the highly thermal RT-4 facility of the NBS Research Reactor, and Cr concentrations have been determined in samples of whole human blood collected under clean conditions and in two certified reference materials.
