Abstract  

A simple procedure for the correction of residual dead-time losses in γ-ray spectrometry of mixtures of short-lived radionuclides is given. It is based on the value of the total deadtime at the beginning of the measurement and three constants which are characteristics for a given matrix. The application to the instrumental neutron activation analysis of fluorine and sodium in bone is given as an exaple.

Abstract  

A neutron activation analysis method for the determination of Se(IV) in natural waters is described. It is based on the coprecipitation of the metal dibenzyldithiocarbamate with phenolphthalein. The precipitate is collected on 0.45 m membrane filters and selenium is determined by instrumental neutron activation. A Se(IV) radiotracer (75Se, T=120 d) was used to establish optimum conditions and to evaluate the chemical yield. Samples of sea and canal water were analyzed.

Abstract  

The interferences by uranium fission on the determination by neutron activation analysis of Zr, Mo, Ru, La, Ce, Nd and Sm are investigated for the Argonaut-type Low Flux Reactor at ECN, Petten, The Netherlands. In addition, the spectral interference of the determination of Sm by239Np is considered. The experimental values for fission yields are found to be in good agreement with calculated values based on recent cross-section compilations.
