Abstract  

Radiochemical separations of carrier-free210Bi and UX1 activities from210Pb and U, respectively, have been carried out using a silica gel column.210Pb was adsorbed in the column as molybdate and210Bi passed unadsorbed. Lead activity was next removed with 25 ml of 0.1 M HNO3. In the case of separation of UX1, the coloured carbonate complex of U was removed from the silica surface by washing with saturated sodium carbonate solution, keeping UX1 retained, and finally UX1 was washed out with 25 ml of conc. HNO3. Studies of the beta decay of210Bi and the γ-spectrum analysis of UX1 has shown that the separated products in both cases are of high radiochemical purity. The processes in each case took less than one hour and the yield was satisfactory.
