Determination of fluorine in water samples by spiking isotope dilution and adsorption on glass beads

  • W. van der Mark
  • H. A. Das


A rapid method for the radiometric determination of fluoride concentration in aqueous solutions is presented. The method depends on the chemisorption of HF on a glass adsorber from a dilute acid solution, which has been spiked with18F. The limit of the determination is 0.03 μg/ml. Applications to surface water and urine samples are discussed.
