Abstract  

Radiometric techniques of determining the nickel content in lateritic ore samples are described. In some of the methods proposed a semiconductor detector and a multichannel pulse height analyzer are required. In another technique simple portable equipment with a proportional counter was used. Calculation methods of correction for matrix effects were applied, in combination with measurements of the fluorescence to scatter ratio and the use of edge filters.

Abstract  

The present work shows a methodology for the application of EDXRF with a X-ray tube, in the analysis of elements in the following matrices: microalgae, marine algae, marine sediments and corals. Various methods were applied: one using a relative external standard, a fundamental parameters method, an absolute method based on elemental sensitivity, a method which used X-ray fluorescence excitation measured in the back side of the sample for low contents heavy elements determination and a TRXRF method. The thin layer samples were prepared using a plastic resin. The analyzed samples of marine algae, marine sediments and corals belong to a marine ecosystem from the North of Havana City, the most affected area by natural metereological phenomena and human impact.
