Determination of rare earths in rare-earth concentrates by neutron activation analysis
- 27 Downloads
Neutron activation analysis was applied to the determination of La, Ce, Pr, Nd, Sm, Eu, Gd, Tb, Dy, Yb, Lu and Th in rare-earth concentrates resulting from minerals. High-resolution gamma-ray spectrometry with a Ge(Li) detector was used for the non-destructive determination, and a single comparator method using Co as flux monitor was applied.
