Iron foil was irradiated with an 80 MeV/nucleon16O-ion beam. The foil was dissolved in hydrochloric acid, and Fe2+ in the solution was oxidized to Fe3+ with hydrogen peroxide. The solution was diluted to 6M in HCl and was passed through an anion exchange column. Washing with 6M HCl yielded a carrier- and salt-free multitracer solution covering radioactive nuclides of elements from sodium to manganese.
