Prompt gamma activation analysis (PGAA) has been used to analyze metal ion oxyanion materials that have multiple applications,
including medicine, materials, catalysts, and electronics. The significance for the need for accurate, highly sensitive analyses
for the materials is discussed in the context of quality control of end products containing the parent element in each material.
Applications of the analytical data for input to models and theoretical calculations related to the electronic and other properties
of the materials are discussed.
