Abstract
    A method for the determination of methylmercury at ng 1-1 levels in natural waters is described. Methylmercury present in a sample is first preconcentrated on a column of a resin containing dithiocarbamate groups and eluted quantitatively with acidic thiourea solution. Methylmercury in the effluent is then converted to the iodide by addition of sulphuric acid and iodoacetic acid and determined by headspace gas chromatography with microwave-induced plasma detection. The adsorption properties of the resin are discussed.
