Abstract  

The behaviour of 66 radio-ions towards 11 exchangers and 11 solutions under standardized experimental conditions has been evaluated and classified in order to have the possibility of a rapid assessment of radiochemical separation procedures. Two systems of utilizing the bulk of data obtained have been devised and employed. The first is based on the use of a deck of cards similar to those used for fast retrieval of bibliographic information, in which the behaviour of ions is coded by means of punched holes; the second is based on the treatment of the data by means of an electronic computer. The operational modes of the two systems and examples of their practical applications are presented.
