IM Kempson, D.A. Henry, Synchrotron Radiation Reveals Arsenic Poisoning and Metabolism in Hair: The case of Phar Lap, Angewandte Chemie – Int Ed. 49,4237-4240, 2010.
An eighty-year-old mystery is solved in the retrospective post-mortem examination of the iconic race horse Phar Lap. As reported by I. Kempson and D. Henry in their Communication on page 4237 ff., distinct trends in arsenic distributions and chemistry consistent with ingestion of the toxin hours before Phar Laps excruciating and rapid demise. This unique case of hair analysis reveals metabolic and hair-incorporation processes associated with his arsenic consumption.
