A neutron activation analysis method for the determination of Be, Li, B, F, and Pb
A neutron activation analysis procedure that utilizes reactor pulsing, rapid sample transfer and a Cerenkov counter for the determination of Be, Li, B, and F via very short-lived radioisotopic indicators is shown to give analytical sensitivities for these elements of 15μg, 0.0008μg, 1.1μg, and 0.83μg, respectively. Use of a NaI(Tl) counter coupled to the same system enables the detection of 0.4μg of Pb via 0.8 second207mPb.
