Formatted Abstract/Summary
Mercury has long been recognised as a neurotoxin element for many decades and with its compounds being extremely toxic, is ranked third in the ‘priority list of hazardous substance’ by the United States comprehensive environmental response, compensation, and liability act. In different samples, mercury can exist as either its inorganic or organic forms and this paper will review the methods for monitoring mercury in different environmental and industrial samples such as environmental waters, animals and industrial waste.
