Abstract

A method is described for the determination of lead in musts, wines and vinegars by atomic absorption spectroscopy. The method, already proposed as an official method both in Italy and at the O.I.V., gives sufficiently accurate and reproducible results and is particularly suitable for routine analysis. It has been tested on 120 white and red italian wines and has shown that lead pollution in wines has not reached dangerous limits.
