I wanted to do something related to chemistry and I had access to spectrophotometer and I knew there was this relatively sensitive colorimetric test for lead (pink dithizone complex extraction, to CCl4) so I set out to see if there was increased lead content in fruit picked roadside. (This was 20 years ago, so most cars used leaded gas). Sure enough, if when I looked hard I could find somewhat increased lead content in apples grown on the roadside. <BR/><BR/>This work did not prove anything we did not know before but if I wanted I could have made big deal out of the my "findings."<BR/><BR/>In reality, it was a masturbation-like activity, done for me to feel important about my "research".milkshakehttp://orgprepdaily.wordpress.com[email protected]
