Part of the Developments in Applied Spectroscopy book series (DAIS, volume 5)


A method is described for the determination by neutron activation analysis of calcium, copper, manganese, magnesium, sodium, and chlorine using one chemical separation and two irradiations. Separations of the metals calcium, copper, manganese, and magnesium from the sodium and chlorine ions was done with a chelating agent in an organic solvent.
