Analysis for Mercury in Coal.
NTIS: PB 204 152 :4 pages
Mercury exists in coal at very low levels; the structure of coal, the vapor pressure of mercury, and its almost universal occurrence introduce unusual problems into the analytical methods. Round-robin analyses by several laboratories, each using its own techniques, indicate that the average mercury content of coal is about 0.2 Ppm. Some western coals are as low as 0.05 Ppm.
