Liquid Scintillation Counting of Tritium in Suspended Materials

  • J. F. Snell


The common impression of people with whom I have discussed the title of my talk, “Liquid Scintillation Counting of Tritium in Suspended Materials,” is that it described something that everyone would like to be able to do, but that at the present time is considered either impossible or very difficult. Let me say at the outset that I largely agree with this common impression. The problems involved are far from simple, even if one requires only reasonable precision and accuracy within the limits of biological variation. Furthermore, a resolution for one group of materials cannot be generalized to include other types of materials.
