Urinary and fecal (both bile and intestinal mucosa) routes of excretion are the most important for the elimination of mercury. To date, the ost popular and widely used method for determining alkyl mercuries in tissue samples is the WESTOO procedure. This paper describes a modification of the above procedure for the determination of methyl mercury in urine employing a cysteine acetate cleanup procedure and analysis using te GLC-EG technique.
