In the present paper, a tabulation is given of recommended Q0-values [the ratio of the resonance integral (I0) to the 2200 m·s–1 cross-section (0)] for 107 (n, ) reactions of interest in NAA, including a revision and updating of formerly published results for 57 isotopes. The values were either critically evaluated from literature, or-in the majority of cases — experimentally determined according to the Cd-ratio method, with a correction for a non-ideal epithermal neutron flux distribution. These Q0-measurements were performed at INW, Gent, at KFKI, Budapest, and occasionally at Risø. A comparison is made with results obtained by other workers or with values derived from 0's and I0's quoted in recent compilations.
