Abstract

natY foil was irradiated by 20 MeV proton to produce no-carrier-added 88,89Zr. A comparative evaluation on radioanalytical separation methods of 88,89Zr was carried out from irradiated target matrix by both liquid–liquid (LLX) and solid–liquid (SLX) extraction methods using di-(2-ethylhexyl) phosphoric acid (HDEHP) dissolved in cyclohexane as liquid cation exchanger and Dowex 50W-X8 H+ form (20–50 mesh) as solid cation exchanger. Both the methods offer good separation and high yield of nca 88,89Zr but SLX offers much higher separation factor and better yield.
