Abstract

The main objective of this study was to determine the concentrations of toxic heavy metals (Cd, Mn, Cu, Ni and Cr) in locally made plastic toys purchased from Lucknow, Kanpur, Allahabad, Varanasi and Mau districts of Uttar Pradesh, India. All samples were digested with concentrated nitric acid (USP-400220 method) and analyzed by using atomic absorption spectrophotometer (AAS) to determine the metal concentrations, which lie in the range of Cd (0.172-0.0 ppm), Mn (1.521-0.0 ppm), Cu (1.251-0.0 ppm), Ni (1.211-0.0 ppm) and Cr (1.251-0.0 ppm).
