Abstract: Samples of DORM-1 dogfish muscle and TORT-1 lobster hepatopancreas were acidified with HCl and extracted with toluene, and the organomercury compounds were back-extracted into aqueous cysteine acetate solution. Extracts were analyzed by isotope-dilution ICP-MS with use of a flow injection technique and a 100 µL sample loop in order to overcome interference caused by the presence of 4% of Na in the extracts. Results were compared with those obtained by GC - ECD. Methylmercury is the only significant organomercury compound present in DORM-1.
