Liver tissues from rat have been analyzed for determining trace amounts of manganese present by employing thermal neutron activation analysis and substoichiometric solvent extraction of Mn/II/ with 1,2,3-benzotriazole into 1-octanol. Three samples and a standard can be processed and counted within three hours.
