Abstract  

A procedure is described for the determination of thallium in complex biological matrices by thermal neutron activation analysis employing substoichiometric extraction of thallium(I) with 2-mercaptobenzothiazole (2-HMBT) at a pH of 7.5 into chloroform, and low-level beta-counting.

Abstract  

A rapid and selective method has been developed for the determination of cadmium in environmental samples by thermal neutron activation analysis, employing substoichiometric solvent extraction technique. Alcoholic solution of 2-mercaptobenzothiazole /2-HMBT/ has been used for the substoichiometric extraction of Cd/II/ from an aqueous solution of pH 7.0 into methyl iso-butyl ketone /MIBK/.

Abstract  

A rapid and simple method for the determination of selenium in biological and environmental samples by thermal neutron activation analysis, employing substoichiometric solvent extraction of Se/IV/ with 2-mercaptobenzothiazole /2-HMBT/ from 5. 7M HCl solution into chloroform has been developed.

Abstract  

The extraction of Tl/I/ with 2-mercaptobenzothiazole into chloroform has been studied. The effect of various parameters on the extraction coefficient value has been evaluated. The stoichiometry of the extracted species obtained from the substoichiometric extraction was found to be 11. This war further supported by the slope ratio method. Decontamination factors of a number of elements in the substoichiometric extraction of Tl/I/ were also obtained.

Abstract  

A procedure for sequential radiochemical separation of Se(IV), Tl(I) and Cd(II) has been developed. This procedure involves substoichiometric solvent extraction of these ions with 2-mercaptobenzothiazole (2-HMBT) under different experimental conditions.

Abstract  

The extraction of Se/IV/ from hydrochloric acid medium with 2-mercaptobenzothiazole/2-HMBT/into chloroform has been studied. The effect of various parameters on the extraction coefficient value such as molarity of hydrochloric acid, time of equilibration, effect of cations and anions etc., has been evaluated. The stoichiometry of the extracted species was determined by the method of substoichiometric extraction and slope ratio method and was found to be 1∶4. Decontamination factors for many elements in the substoichiometric extraction of Se/IV/ was also obtained.

The extraction of cadmium/II/ with 2-mercaptobenzothiazole /2HMBT/ into methyl iso-butyl ketone has been studied. The effect of various parameters on the extraction coefficient value such as effect of pH, time of equilibration, effect of anions and cations have been evaluated. The stiochiometry of the extracted species obtained by the method of substoichiometric extraction and mole ratio method was found to be 1:2. Decontamination factors for a number of elements in the substoichiometric extraction of Cd/II/ were also obtained.

Abstract  

The toxicity of Se, Cd, and Hg as environmental pollutants and the impact of these elements on the aquatic ecosystem is undisputed. The present paper reports an investigation of the concentration of Cd, Se, and Hg in an aquatic environment of a large metropolitan city like Bombay. As the toxicity of these elements manifests itself at micro and submicro levels, the very sensitive technique of neutron activation analysis was employed. A sequential substoichiometric extraction technique for the separation of radiochemically pure203Hg,75Se, and115–115mCd from the neutron irradiated target has also been employed.
