A versatile separation system based on the extraction of dithiocarbamates and applicable to the determination of copper, managanese, zinc and indium in a wide selection of materials by activation analysis is described. After the dissolution of the sample and a few simple operations which eliminate specific interferences, depending upon the material (e. g. sodium and gold in the NBS Standard Reference Glasses), carbamates are extracted under specific conditions by addition of appropriate complexing agents and selective stripping. Extreme separation factors permit interference-free counting using a sodium iodide detector. For example, indium is separated from a hundred thousand fold excess of manganese in the determination of the two elements in Orchard Leaves. Results are also presented for all four elements in Bowen's Kale, NBS Bovine Liver, and for Cu, In and Mn in the 0.02 ppm and 1 ppm SRM glasses.
