Abstract Mercuric chloride (HGCl2) is a white crystalline substance that is currently used as a catalyst or reagent in various chemical reactions, and to a lesser extent as a disinfectant or pesticide. Mercury exists in various valence states and forms, and upon entering an environmental or biological system in one form may be changed into a different form with different environmental transport properties, pharmacokinetics and toxicity. The estimated intake of inorganic mercury (including HgCl2) for an adult from air, food, water, and dental amalgam restorations is 3.9 to 24.6 microg Hg(2+)/day. Most inorganic mercury is deposited in the kidney.
