Abstract  

The possibility of (n, γ) reaction for cancer therapy is discussed in connection with gadolinium due to its exceptionally high cross section. It is argued that the therapeutic effect is not only due to Auger electrons but also to the recoil of the Gd atom. If the Gd atom is bound to the DNA it will cause several raptures in the same DNA molecule leading to death of the cancerous cells.

Abstract  

Thermal neutron activation analysis technique was used in air pollution and aerosol elemental content and size distribution investigations. Air pollution samples were collected on Whatman 41 paper filters which were activated along with known quantities of standards in a flux of ∼1013 n·cm−2·s−1. The activity of the samples was measured with a 40 cm3 Ge(Li) detector and analyzed with the computer program JANE, which identified the isotopes and found their quantities by normalization with the standard measurement results. Correlation between the various elements, in particular those belonging to dust from the desert and those considered typical urban air pollution, is investigated.
