With the increase in most cases know-how of the consequences of hint chemical compounds within the atmosphere on man's health and wellbeing, it's been learned that conventional equipment of research are frequently insufficient. trustworthy analyses are wanted within the fractional parts-per­ million variety of contaminants in condensed levels, and of the order of micrograms according to cubic meter in air. attempting to get significant solutions concerning such minute quantities increases cogent difficulties in all phases of an research. it's most excellent, as a result, that the 1971 jap Analytical Symposium must have 4 half-day periods dedicated to this basic box. of those, entitled "Trace Metals within the Envi­ ronment," have been assembled via Dr. Kneip, one on "Pesticides within the surroundings: lately stumbled on Analytical Problems," via Dr. Zweig, and one on "The selection of Anions in Water," by way of Dr. Lambert. jointly, those studies provide a pretty whole photo of the current country of environmental anal­ ysis. the rest of this quantity is dedicated to pharmaceutical research, a assorted box within which approximately all analytical equipment discover a position. in part due to this multiplicity of concepts, and in part because of the huge variety of samples which needs to be tested in reference to the manu­ facture, organic checking out, and medical applica­ tion of pharmaceutical arrangements, this sector is especially applicable for the advent of automation. the target, largely, is to hurry up a number of analyses with out the sacrifice of accuracy.

It is obvious that the time of duration of the exposure is of significance. For materials which are ingested, the digestion of the food stuff and/or conversion of the substance involved to a utilizable form may well be involved in determining the absorption of any given material. All of these then come into play in determining the transfer coefficient, which is the fraction of the material crossing the membrane as compared to the ambient available mass involved in the exposure. BIOCHEMICAL EFFECTS Trace elements may be divided into three major classes.

D-. D. D. D. D. D. 02 ATMOSPHERIC TRACE METAL STUDIES 33 Tables 9 and 10 list the values for trace metals in precipitation in New York for the period 2 Sept. 1970 through July 1971. Table 9 is in units of ~g/cm for easy comparison with the total fallout data of Table 8. Table 10 shows the same data in concentration units of micrograms per milliliter of precipitation (~/ml) or parts per million (ppm). In these tables the values for cadmium have been omitted because the collection device apparently contaminated the samples with cadmium.
