Abstract  

Instrumental neutron activation analysis (INAA) was applied to the rapid determination of magnesium in the botanical reference materials Beech Leaves-100 and Spruce Needles-101. The magnesium content was quantitatively determined by measuring the gamma-ray photopeak at 1014 keV of the short-lived radionuclide27Mg (9.46 m). The magnesium concentrations in the two materials were found to be 834.6±50.2 g·g–1 dry weight and 618.6±36.2 g·g–1, respectively. When assaying a 0.1 g sample under the same experimental conditions the limit of detection is 30 g of Mg.
