Abstract  

A radiochemical neutron activation analysis procedure has been applied to investigate 40 major, minor, and trace impurities in nickel-based alloy. The extensive use of these alloys in the electronic industry, telecommunications, manufacturing of aircraft engine turbine blades and chemical equipments desires for their precise characterization. The concentration of nickel in the nickel-based alloy was found to be 56.8%, whereas Fe, Cr, Ca, Mg, Ce, Mn, Na and V were the major components of the alloy, which constituted to more than 26%. The rest of the elements was present in minor or trace levels. Most of the rare earth elements except Ce were also present in trace amounts. Neutron activation analysis technique was preferably used because of its good sensitivity and multielement determination capabilities for the characterization of high purity materials. The comparison of RNAA and INAA indicated improvement in the detection limits utilizing radiochemical separation procedures developed in the present work.
