Abstract  

An overview of Compton suppression neutron activation analysis (NAA) is given. The basic theory of the technique, its experimental design, uniqueness, and limitations are discussed. Experimental data showing its usefulness for the low level determination of several key elements in environmental samples that can not be obtained using conventional non-destructive neutron activation is deliberated.
