Rapid abrasion test to indicate lead on the surface of ceramicware.


PMID 8012226

Abstract

A rapid abrasion test (RAT) was developed for screening ceramicware for Pb. A Pb-sensitive chromogen (rhodizonic acid) reacts to form a persistent colored complex, indicating the presence of Pb. RAT takes 2-5 min to complete; a positive test is easily discernible. RAT, which provides only qualitative information, is useful for screening large numbers of ceramicware items for the presence of Pb at > or = 0.05 microgram/mL.
