Abstract  

Radiation stability of a set of three synthetic multielement standards (SMELS) designed for validation of k0-standardization in neutron activation analysis was tested by monitoring mass and element content changes following irradiation at a high neutron fluence rate (up to 9.1013 n.cm-2.s-1) for stepwise increased periods of time. No mass changes were detected and for all the 26 elements investigated only a chlorine content loss was observed. Thus, radiation stability of the SMELS materials for the given purpose and their suitability for use also in high-power reactors was demonstrated.
