One study indicated that women workers exposed in an antimony plant experienced a greater incidence of spontaneous abortions than did a control group of nonexposed working women. A high rate of premature deliveries among women workers in antimony smelting and processing was also observed .
In Asia, where most of the Antimony mining activities take place, a number of environmental requirements are imposed on mines to minimize and control their environmental impacts. As regards Antimony mines, environmental impacts are typically caused by other chemicals which are extracted with Antimony, such as lead and arsenic.
Abstract Antimony is ubiquitously present in the environment as a result of natural processes and human activities. It exists mainly as Sb and Sb in environmental, biological and geochemical samples. Antimony and its compounds are considered to be priority pollutants interest by the USEPA and the EU.
Antimony oxides are used as fire retardants for plastics, textiles, rubber, adhesives, pigments, and paper. Sources and Potential Exposure Antimony is found at very low levels throughout the environment. The concentration of antimony in ambient air ranges from less than 1 nanogram per cubic meter
The biochemical modification of the metals and metalloids mercury, tin, arsenic, antimony, bismuth, selenium, and tellurium via formation of volatile metal hydrides and alkylated species performs a fundamental role in determining the environmental processing of these elements. In most instances, the formation of such species increases the environmental mobility of the element, and can result in bioaccumulation in lipophilic environments.
