Description
 
Chromium is a metal that exists in a variety of valence states, depending on surrounding conditions and what other atoms it is bound to. The most stable forms are metallic chromium, trivalent chromium (chromium III), and hexavalent chromium (chromium VI). Chromium VI has been shown to cause cancer when inhaled in the air. Because compounds containing chromium VI occur as contaminants in drinking water, scientists studied the effects of sodium dichromate dihydrate (SDD) in drinking water on rats and mice to identify potential toxic or cancer-related hazards. Results showed that rats exposed to SDD had carcinomas of the mouth, but none occurred in the control rats. Mice receiving SDD had greatly increased rates of cancer of the small intestine. Illus.
