Determination of cobalt by substoichiometric thermal neutron activation analysis


A selective method has been developed for the determination of traces of cobalt in different matrices by the sensitive technique of thermal neutron activation analysis employing radiochemical separation and substoichiometric extraction of Co/II/ with iso-nitrosobenzoylacetone into chloroform.
