A radiochemical method for the determination of gold using198Au, has been developed. It is based on the synergistic extraction of Au(III) with thionalide (TA) in ethyl methyl ketone (EMK) or isobuthyl methyl ketone (IBMK) at pH 5.0.Effect of various parameters such as pH, nature of solvent and interferences due to other radionuclides have been studied. The method can be used up to 25 ng of Au.
