Abstract:

In water ,antimony has no flavor, scent, or shade .it may best detected by chemical take a look at .quick – time period exposure ( over days or perhaps weeks ) to antimony in drinking water at very high concentration ( above 30 mg/l ) can cause nausea , vomiting and diarrhea. In this study, we focus on the relationship of storage temperature and duration on level release of antimony (Sb) from of plastic drinking water bottles produced in Iraq( seven provinces ).To determine the amount of Sb release from the plastic in to the water, atomic absorption technique was used, Sb release level was increased at (25, 40,60 and -4º C), Sb release level increased with storage duration up to 2- week, indicating that Sb release from bottles may become stable under long term storage. Human health risk was evaluated based on the worst case, i.e., storage at (60 ºC) for 2- week.
