Chromium Assay Kit is a quantitative colorimetric determination of chromium (IV) at 480 nm.
CHROMIUM is widely used in various industries such as electroplating, leather tanning, chrome paint, dying, hardened steel, ceramic and glass industry. Chromium exists in two stable oxidation states, hexavalent Cr(VI) and trivalent Cr(III). Cr(VI) is produced solely by industrial processes, whereas in nature, chromium exists in its trivalent form. Cr(III) is generally regarded as nontoxic due to poor absorption. Cr(VI) is considered a pulmonary carcinogen and has tested positive in genotoxicity tests. It is one of the most serious pollutants in many water streams due to its carcinogenic potential. Most countries apply a legal limit of 50-100 µg/L Cr in drinking water.
