Abstract

Human liver tissues embedded in paraffin wax for histological examination have been studied by Electron Spin Resonance (ESR) spectroscopy. A signal was detected at g∼2.05 section of the spectrum. The amplitude of this signal was correlated with the copper content of the embedded specimens measured by flame atomic absorption technique. The positive correlation which has been found can make ESR spectroscopy suitable for estimating the copper content of tissues without damaging the sample. The limits and errors of this method have also bee analysed.
