The volatilization losses of mercury before, during and after neutron irradiation were studied. To minimize the losses, respectively, were added to the standards, thiourea, L-cysteine, thioacetamide and ammonium sulfide. It was possible to minimize the losses by preserving the standard at −20°C after irradiation. No loss was seen in the biological materials after irradiation.
