Traduction en anglais : Investigations on the potential role of chromium-containing wood stains in the development of nasal cancer.
X-ray microanalyses on surfaces of old furniture revealed the very common use of chromium-containing wood stains especially in the period between 1910 and 1970.
Experiments with freshly stained veneer showed highest chromium concentrations in crystalline residues formed during drying on the wood surface and on the lumen surfaces of the adjacent 3 to 5 cell rows ; chromium was also localized within the walls of these cells.
The amount of cancerogenic hexavalent chromium (CrVI) was determined by spectralphotometry after application of 1,5-diphenylcarbazide (DPC).
Depending on the stain formulation and on the wood species, the amount of CrVI appeared different but in most cases it was still distinct 14 days after staining.
