Counting C14O2 with a Liquid Scintillation Counter

  • Henry Jeffay


This paper presents a method in which C14 is oxidized to CO2-C14 and the gas is then trapped in an ethanolamine solution of ethylene glycol monomethyl ether. An aliquot of the carbonate solution is added to toluene containing a scintillator, cooled to 0°C, and counted in a liquid scintillation spectrometer.
