Abstract

During trace element analysis in water by photon activation analysis it has been shown that long time bremsstrahlung exposure of the water samples followed by a post-concentration step yielded the most reliable results. Higher specific activity and thus — to a certain extent — higher analytical sensitivities were obtained by pre-concentration on a sorption pellet thereafter activated. The particular problems of each technique investigated are discussed in detail.
