Open-cell polyurethane foam cylinders have been used for collecting radioiodine in the vent of a labelled compound producing plant. The cylinders were unimpregnated or impregnated with Alamine 336 with or without stable elemental iodine dissolved. A collection efficiency of about 90% has been obtained for impregnated foam cylinders.
