1.0000 249. Mercury (WHO Food Additives Series 4)
    Summary: The principal forms of mercury commercially discharged into the environment are metallic mercury, inorganic mercury, aryl-mercury, alkyl-mercury and alkoxyalkyl-mercury compounds. Mercurials can be divided into the following groups: (a) elemental mercury, (b) inorganic mercury compounds, (c) aryl and alkoxyalkyl mercury compounds, (d) alkyl mercury compounds. (d) Alkyl mercury compounds The distribution of alkyl mercury in the body tissues is very different from aryl and inorganic mercury.

1.0000 464. Mercury (WHO Food Additives Series 13)
    Summary: Five germ-free ICR-JCL female mice and four conventional ICR-JCL female mice (controls), matched for age and body weight, received 1.0 ml drinking-water, containing methyl mercury chloride (MeHgCl) (20 µg total Hg) for one day. Acute studies Rat Groups of four male and four female weanling SPF-Wistar rats (body weight 40-60 g) were given diets containing 0 (controls), 0.1, 0.5, 2.5, 12.5 and 250 ppm MeHgCl for two weeks. Short-term studies Rat Groups of 15 male and 10 female weanling ...

1.0000 Mercury (EHC 1, 1976)
    Summary: 1.2.5 Metabolism of mercury Approximately 80% of inhaled mercury vapour is retained. In addition to its elemental state, mercury exists in the + 1 (mercury(I)) and +2 (mercury(II)) states in which the mercury atom has lost one and two electrons, respectively. Inorganic mercury compounds included the metallic form, the salts of mercury(I) and mercury(II) ions, and those complexes in which mercury(II) was reversibly bound to such tissue ligands as thiol groups and protein.
