When two objects are found in the same strata of a site, it is usually assumed that they date to the same time period. This is an application of the principle of association. However, the assumption of contemporaneity may not always be correct. This is due to the fact that one or both of the objects may have been moved or redeposited into a different location.
In other words, they may no longer be in their primary context. When the bones of our early ancestors are found in the same geological strata as those of other animals that are known to have lived only during a specific time period in the past, we assume that these ancestors must also have come from that time.
This is referred to as dating by association with index fossils , or biostratigraphy. Elephants, horses, pigs, rodents, and some monkey species have been used as index fossils because they underwent relatively rapid evolutionary changes that are identifiable in their teeth and other skeletal parts.
Their bones also were frequently found in association with our human and primate ancestors. Fluorine Analysis. When bones, teeth, or antlers are found at a site, fluorine analysis can be used to tell us whether or not the animals they were from actually lived at about the same time. This relative dating method is based on the fact that there are specific progressive chemical changes in skeletal remains that result from burial underground.
As time passes, the organic components of bone mostly fat s and protein s are lost primarily through bacterial action. Since these components contain nitrogen, there is a progressive loss of that element. At the same time, percolating ground water deposits trace amounts of fluorine and other elements, such as uranium, into the bone.
As a result, the amount of fluorine and other trace elements progressively increase. If the bones of two animals are buried at the same time in the same site, they should have the same relative amount of nitrogen and fluorine. If they do not, they most likely come from different eras, despite the fact that they were found in association with each other.
Changes in the amounts of fluorine and nitrogen over time in a buried bone Fluorine analysis can be used only as a relative dating method because the rate of decay and the amount of dissolved minerals in the ground water varies from site to site. In other words, the biochemical clock that this method relies on runs at a different rate in different environments. Fluorine analysis is primarily used for verifying whether or not two fossils in the same strata at a site were in fact contemporaneous.
If not, then at least one of them must be physically out of context. A good example of the value of fluorine analysis was in bringing to light the Piltdown Man hoax. In , Charles Dawson, an amateur paleontologist, found what was thought to be an early human skull and jaw in the Piltdown gravel deposits of England.
Because it had an ape-like jaw and was found in association with the bones of extinct animals, this "Piltdown Man" was also believed to be a very ancient human. It was popularly referred to as "the missing link" in human evolution. In , the Piltdown bones were finally tested for fluorine content by Kenneth Oakley and the fraud became apparent. After reexamining the strata at the Piltdown site, the evidence of a hoax was published in This was verified through the use of X-ray fluorescence examination.
The skull and jaw clearly were not from the same time period. The jaw was likely to have come from a modern young adult orangutan. It had been cleverly carved to fit the skull and stained to look ancient. In addition, the associated bones from extinct animals had much older fluorine and nitrogen ratios than either the jaw or the human skull. Once they enter the bone substance they are not released, unless the whole bone becomes dissolved. The process goes on continuously, and the fluorine-content of the bone or tooth increases in course of time.
This fact provides rather a neat means of distinguishing fossilized bones of different ages occurring at a particular place. Of course it does not make it possible to date bones in terms of years, or even to give a relative date to isolated bones. Thus, bones buried in gravels where there is a fair amount of fluorine in the ground-water accumulate it much more rapidly than others buried in gravels where there is very little fluorine in the water. If, however, one happens to be interested in separating bones of different ages at one locality, estimation of fluorine-content is helpful.
For example, when human bones are found in ancient river gravels, doubt sometimes arises as to whether they were embedded at the time when the gravels were laid down, or whether they represent a later interment by a grave-digger. If fossil animal bones undoubtedly contemporary with the gravel are available for comparison, fluorine-analysis will clearly differentiate bones which have been interred at a sufficiently later date.
However, the Department of the Government Chemist agreed to help in exploring the possible applications of the test, and members of the staff of that department succeeded in determining the fluorine contained in a carefully selected series of small samples of fossil bone and teeth. Most of the samples used for analysis were obtained by a fine dental drill applied to the broken edge of each bone or tooth until a small but sufficient quantity of the "bone dust" had been cored out.
The test has proved most successful in certain cases. The work is still in progress, but the results already obtained in the case of the Galley Hill Skeleton, the Swanscombe Skull and the Piltdown Skull are of considerable interest. The gravels are Middle Pleistocene, that is to say of early palaeolithic age; and there has been a long controversy as to whether the human bones had been naturally buried in the gravels when they were laid down by the Thames, a quarter of a million years ago, or whether they had been buried artificially at a comparatively recent date.
We collected a number of fossil animal bones from these early palaeolithic gravels, a number from later palaeolithic i. Upper Pleistocene deposits in neighbouring pits, and some from recent deposits, including part of a Saxon skeleton. These were analysed in the Government Laboratory and it was found that all the undoubted early palaeolithic bones contained around 2 per cent. Some spare scraps of the Galley Hill Man had been left in the Museum Collection by one of the original investigators, and we submitted these for analysis.
They showed around 0. Yet the skeleton had been found in gravels in which the genuine fossil animal bones show 2 per cent. Clearly the skeleton is not a quarter of a million years old as has been alleged, but is a comparatively recent burial, almost certainly less than 10, years old.
To check the validity of the test we had it applied to the bones of the Swanscombe Skull found deep in the same gravels by Mr. Marston 13 years ago, and accepted by geologists as certainly contemporary with the containing deposit, which is rich in Acheulian hand-axes.
It proved to contain 2 per cent. Its early palaeolithic age has thus been confirmed by the test. Incidentally it is now the oldest known human cranium in Europe and although older than Neanderthal Man approaches more closely the species to which we belong. One of the outstanding problems presented by the remains known as Eoanthropus dawsoni or "Piltdown Man" also depends for its solution on the separation of bones of different ages found in a single deposit.
Many current antidepressants receive this same treatment, including the selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors : citalopram , its isomer escitalopram , and fluvoxamine and paroxetine. These include ciprofloxacin and levofloxacin. Later compounds such as the fluorinated ethers sevoflurane and desflurane are better than halothane and are almost insoluble in blood, allowing faster waking times.
Fluorine is often found in radioactive tracers for positron emission tomography, as its half-life of almost two hours is long enough to allow for its transport from production facilities to imaging centers. Liquid fluorocarbons can hold large volumes of oxygen or carbon dioxide, more so than blood, and have attracted attention for their possible uses in artificial blood and in liquid breathing. Partial and complete lung filling have been considered, though only the former has had any significant tests in humans.
Fluorine is not essential for humans and mammals, but small amounts are known to be beneficial for the strengthening of dental enamel where the formation of fluorapatite makes the enamel more resistant to attack, from acids produced by bacterial fermentation of sugars. Small amounts of fluorine may be beneficial for bone strength, but the latter has not been definitively established.
Natural organofluorines have been found in microorganisms and plants  but not animals. Elemental fluorine is highly toxic to living organisms. Its effects in humans start at concentrations lower than hydrogen cyanide 's 50 ppm  and are similar to those of chlorine:  significant irritation of the eyes and respiratory system as well as liver and kidney damage occur above 25 ppm, which is the immediately dangerous to life and health value for fluorine.
Hydrofluoric acid is the weakest of the hydrohalic acids, having a pKa of 3. It is able to attack glass, concrete, metals, organic matter. Hydrofluoric acid is a contact poison with greater hazards than many strong acids like sulfuric acid even though it is weak: it remains neutral in aqueous solution and thus penetrates tissue faster, whether through inhalation, ingestion or the skin, and at least nine U.
It reacts with calcium and magnesium in the blood leading to hypocalcemia and possible death through cardiac arrhythmia. If skin has been exposed to HF, damage can be reduced by rinsing it under a jet of water for 10—15 minutes and removing contaminated clothing. Using calcium chloride — a common laboratory reagent — in lieu of calcium gluconate is contraindicated, and may lead to severe complications. Excision or amputation of affected parts may be required.
Soluble fluorides are moderately toxic: 5—10 g sodium fluoride, or 32—64 mg fluoride ions per kilogram of body mass, represents a lethal dose for adults. Exposure limits are determined by urine testing of the body's ability to clear fluoride ions. Historically, most cases of fluoride poisoning have been caused by accidental ingestion of insecticides containing inorganic fluorides. The Montreal Protocol , signed in , set strict regulations on chlorofluorocarbons CFCs and bromofluorocarbons due to their ozone damaging potential ODP.
The high stability which suited them to their original applications also meant that they were not decomposing until they reached higher altitudes, where liberated chlorine and bromine atoms attacked ozone molecules. Organofluorines exhibit biopersistence due to the strength of the carbon—fluorine bond. Perfluoroalkyl acids PFAAs , which are sparingly water-soluble owing to their acidic functional groups, are noted persistent organic pollutants ;  perfluorooctanesulfonic acid PFOS and perfluorooctanoic acid PFOA are most often researched.
A review showed a slight correlation between groundwater and soil PFAA levels and human activity; there was no clear pattern of one chemical dominating, and higher amounts of PFOS were correlated to higher amounts of PFOA. Dwell time in the body varies greatly by species, with half-lives of days in rodents, and years in humans.

Samples may shatter and sample windows blow out.
