Ion-exchange separation of uranium, thorium and plutonium isotopes from environmental samples
MetadataShow full item record
Radioisotopes of uranium, thorium and plutonium in water, soil and fertilizer samples, have been chemically separated and determined by alpha-spectrometry method. Radiochemical Procedure involving ion-exchange, enabled to determine these isotopes in very tow concentrations (under 50 mu Bg/g). U-232, Th-229 and Pu-238 were used as a tracers for radiochemical yield recoveries (up to 90%). Thin layer sources have been obtained by electrodeposition.
