Abstract
Antimony is a naturally occurring element. It belongs to group 15 of the periodic table of the elements. Antimony can exist in a variety of oxidation states (–III, 0, III, V) but it is mainly found in two oxidation states (III and V) in environmental, biological, and geochemical samples. Although antimony was already known to the ancients, it is still often overlooked, both as an element of environmental concern and as a subject for study, probably because of its lower abundance and the relative insolubility of most of its compounds. This is reflected in the poor standard of existing data on the behavior of antimony in natural waters. However, interest in the st...
