Abstract  

The determination of boron in rocks by charged particle activation using the10B(d, n)11C reaction is studied. A sample holder that allows reproducible irradiation of powdered samples is developed.11C is separated as11CO2. For boron concentrations between 2.35 and 25.2 μg·g−1, the standard deviations ranges from 7.1 to 22.8%. The results for USGS reference silicate rocks and Moroccan phosphate rock are compared to those obtained by other techniques.
