SOIL SCIENCE SOCIETY OF AMERICAN JOURNAL 13/06/19 Health Assessment of Nickel-Contaminated Soils Linked to Chemical and Biological Characteristics

Zhenga and Murray B. McBride *b Core Ideas: Ni-contaminated soils were evaluated for microbial function and genetic diversity. Soils with >500 mg kg total Ni had reduced microbial biomass and respiration. Soils contaminated historically by refinery nickel (Ni) emissions were subjected to laboratory assays evaluating soil health, including microbial function, biomass, and community diversity, based on high-throughput DNA sequencing.

MOLECULES 10/10/18 Determination of Trace Nickel in Water Samples by Graphite Furnace Atomic Absorption Spectrometry after Mixed Micelle-Mediated Cloud Point Extraction.

A simple and sensitive cloud point extraction method for the preconcentration of ultra-trace amounts of nickel as a prior step to its determination by graphite furnace atomic absorption spectrometry was proposed.

MOLECULES 10/10/18 Determination of Trace Nickel in Water Samples by Graphite Furnace Atomic Absorption Spectrometry after Mixed Micelle-Mediated Cloud Point Extraction

It is based on the reaction of nickel with 2-(5-bromo-2-pyridylazo)-5-dimethylaminoaniline (5-Br-PADMA) in HAc–NaAc buffer media and mixed micelle-mediated extraction of the complex using the anionic surfactant sodium dodecyl sulfate sodium (SDS) and non-ionic surfactant (1,1,3,3-Tetramethylbutyl)phenyl-polyethylene (Triton X-114). The optimal reaction and extraction conditions such as pH, concentration of 5-Br-PADMA, SDS and Triton X-114, equilibrium temperature, incubation, and centrifuge time were evaluated and optimized. Under the optimal conditions, the calibration graph was linear over the range 0.1–5.5 ng/mL of nickel with a correlation coefficient of 0.9942. ►▼ Show Figures Figure 1.

INORGANICS 12/07/19 Concise Review of Nickel Human Health Toxicology and Ecotoxicology

Nickel is a naturally occurring element in water, soil, air, and living organisms, and is essential to microorganisms and plants. Thus, human and environmental nickel exposures are ubiquitous. Production and use of nickel and its compounds can, however, result in additional exposures to humans and the environment. Notable human health toxicity effects identified from human and/or animal studies include respiratory cancer, non-cancer toxicity effects following inhalation, dermatitis, and reproductive effects.

These effects have thresholds, with indirect genotoxic and epigenetic events underlying the threshold mode of action for nickel carcinogenicity.

La Daldykan longe la ville industrielle de Norilsk, la ville la plus froide du monde, surtout connue pour sa pollution.

En 2003, Courrier International racontait «les nuages oranges» et «l’eau bleue fluo» de la ville. Les usines de Norilsk, majoritairement possédée par Norilsk Nickel, rejettent près de deux tonnes de déchets toxiques par an. D’après le Siberian Times, l’eau de la Daldykan a été polluée par une fuite de l’usine métallurgique Nadezhda qui traite le nickel.

EFSA 20/04/15 Scientific Opinion on the risks to animal and public health and the environment related to the presence of nickel in feed

Ni is a metal that occurs in a number of different soluble and particulate forms, which are ubiquitously found in the environment both from natural occurrence and from anthropogenic activity. Animal feed contains Ni, particularly in the divalent form, its most stable oxidation state. Additionally certain vegetable oils can contain traces of metallic Ni, since it is used as a catalyst in their hydrogenation.

BFR 12/11/13 High nickel release from metal construction kits can trigger allergies

The Federal Office for Risk Assessment (BfR) has assessed nickel release from toys from a health point of view. The data were collected as part of the country-wide federal control plan (BÜP). 29 out of 32 inspected metal construction kits exceeded the legal limit value for nickel release from toys. Nickel causes allergies more frequently than any other metal.

"The legal limit values for nickel release must be complied", says BfR President Professor Dr. As part of the country-wide federal control plan (BÜP) 2012, the question was investigated how much nickel is released from metal toys after prolonged and direct skin contact, as is the case when children play with such toys. Metal and model construction kits were especially conspicuous. So far only few data on nickel release from toys have been available. About the BfR.

PARLEMENT EUROPEEN - Réponse à question E-006349-13 Ban on barbecue grills with a high health risk. According to a recent study (attached) published by the Metalwork Technology Institute, which is a non-profit research association working with the Polytechnic University of Valencia, roasting grills with a metal coating of nickel, chromium, copper, tin or zinc — still sold in most EU countries — pose a serious health risk to the population.

PARLEMENT EUROPEEN - Réponse à question E-006349-13 Ban on barbecue grills with a high health risk

This is because, when the grill is heated in the roasting process, the metal coating peels off and sticks to the food, meaning that people ingest these heavy metal carcinogens. Regulation (EC) 1935/2004, on materials and articles intended to come into contact with food, requires utensils to be manufactured ‘to preclude substances from being transferred to food in quantities large enough to endanger human health’.
