Abstract  

A method of neutron activation analysis is described for the quantitative determination of phosporus in nucleic acids, nucleotides and glucose-6-phosphate in amounts of 0.1 to 200 μg, without any chemical separation. This technique may be usefully applied to the measurement of the phosporus content in organic materials and biochemical preparations. The procedure involves a short neutron activation in a nuclear reactor and measurement of the Cerenkov radiation emitted by the irradiated capsule after a suitable decay period. Possible interferences due to other induced radionuclides are discussed.
