Abstract

Am(Be) neutron source was used for activation of samples and76As radioactivity measured by both β and γ-counting techniques. The samples analyzed were raw materials traditionally used in formulating Myanmar indigenous medicines. The results were compared with those obtained by volumetric analysis and those reported in the literature.
