Abstract

The carrier-free radiotracers,52,56Mn,55,56,58Co and56,57Ni were produced simultaneously by accelerated α-particle activation of iron. They were subsequently studied through LLX using the liquid cation exchanger, HDEHP, as an extractant. A considerable enrichment of individual carrier free radionuclides of manganese, cobalt and nickel was achieved. Production and verification of purity of the carrier-free radiotracers at different stages of their extraction were carried out by γ-ray spectroscopic studies.
