Activation analysis and radiochemistry, comments to their interrelations
It is the aim of this paper, to demonstrate the manyfold interrelation between radiochemistry and activation analysis. One of the main problems of both fields is the behaviour of submicro concentrations of elements and of their compounds in solids, in solution and in the gas phase. The radiochemists were the first, who have accumulated much experience, investigating the properties of the natural radionuclides. HEVESY has, somewhat later, by his proposal of activation analysis, pointed out a special and powerful way for the determination of submicro amouts of substances.
In the further development till to the present day, both fields have stimulated each other. Their exponents are specialists in understanding and handling submicro concentrations, i.e. in a section of science and technology, growing up to an outstanding importance.
