Abstract  

A new method for obtaining radiochemically pure67Cu from highly active fission product solutions is described. The method is based on the solvent extraction of the Cu(II)-diethyldithiocarbamate complex in n-butyl acetate in the presence of hold-back carriers for Ni, Co, Mn, Mo, rare earths, Cd, Te and Sb, and subsequent purification steps involving scavengings for Ag, Ba, Sr and Fe followed by an anion-exchange purification step for decontamination from Te. Copper is finally extracted as the α-benzoin oxime complex in which form it is mounted and counted. The method has several advantages over other methods in that decontamination is very high and it is sufficiently fast considering the stringent radiochemical purity achieved. The67Cu separated by this procedure from a one-day-old mixture of fission products arising from 1010 fissions was found to be completely free of any contamination.
