Abstract  

Instrumental neutron activation analysis in conjunction with Compton suppression methods has been used to determine chromium concentrations in 13 biological reference materials. Special attention was focussed on the interferences and the ways of lowering their contribution. Separate data was obtained for normal and Compton suppressed modes of counting so that a comparison could be performed. The results for chromium as compared to the certified or compilation values were in excellent agreement.
