Internal standard method for determination of gallium and some trace elements in bauxite by neutron activation analysis
- 47 Downloads
A method is described for the determination of gallium and other trace elements such as Ce, Cr, Hf, Lu and Th in bauxite by the technique of neutron activation analysis using gold as internal standard. Isopropyl ether was used as organic extractant to extract radioactive gallium from the sample. This method yields very good accuracy with a relative error of ±3%.
