  5. I see that Mercury is sold by weight, but it's a liquid. What is the volume?

    The specific gravity of liquid mercury at 20°C is 13.546, according to the CRC Handbook of Chemistry and Physics, 82nd ed. (2001-2002), page 4-19. We list several mercury products, in various package sizes, sold by weight. Here are the conversions from mass to volume: 5G = 0.37 mL. 50G = 3.7 mL. 100G = 7.4 mL. 250G = 18.5 mL. 500G = 36.9 mL. 2KG = 147.6 mL.

  6. My question is not addressed here, how can I contact Technical Service for assistance?

The adipocytokines, leptin, adiponectin, and interleukin-6, which stimulate liver C-reactive protein (CRP) production, are regarded as potential candidate intermediates between adipose tissue and overweight-induced hypertension. We examined the associations between leptin, adiponectin, and CRP levels with both prevalent and 5-year

Mercury has been a known as a toxic substance for centuries. Whilst the clinical features of acute mercury poisoning have been well described, chronic low dose exposure to mercury remains poorly characterised and its potential role in various chronic disease

Mercury (Hg) is an anthropogenic pollutant that is toxic to wildlife and humans, but the response of remote ecosystems to globally distributed Hg is elusive. Here, we use DNA extracted from a dated sediment core to infer the response of

Reports from human case studies indicate a half-life for inorganic mercury in the brain in the order of years-contradicting older radioisotope studies that estimated half-lives in the order of weeks to months in duration. This study systematically reviews available evidence

Mercury (Hg) is a potentially toxic metal ubiquitous in arctic biota. Livers of adult thick-billed murres (Uria lomvia) and northern fulmars (Fulmarus glacialis) sampled from several locations in the eastern Canadian Arctic during 2007-2008 were analyzed for total Hg in
