Abstract  

Evidence for the presence of111Ag in Chernobyl fallout at Monaco is given. This fission radionuclide has not been previously reported in Chernobyl fallout. Peak values were as high as 1.9 Bq m–3. Arguments are presented that the observed110mAg content in the fallout originated from volatilisation of silver neutron flux monitors in the reactor rather than production by other nuclear reactions.
