CANADIAN EXPERIENCE IN THE MEASUREMENT AND CONTROL OF RADIATION HAZARDS IN URANIUM MINES AND MILLS
Apparatases developed for field sampling and measurement of radon are described. A battery-operated air sampler for the collection of radon daughters is described along with a battery-operated, alphaExpand

TLDR
2,3-Dimercaptopropanol (BAL) and its isomer, 1, 3-dimercapto-2-propanol, were much more effective as antidotes to lewisite than any of the other compounds tested. Expand

TLDR
The toxicity of the above thiols and their antidotal activity to lewisite have been compared with those of 2,3-dimercaptopropanol (BAL, British anti-lewisite) and the results of these studies will be published later. Expand
Biochemical studies of toxic agents; experiments with radioactive 2:3-dimercaptopropanol (British anti-lewisite).
TLDR
The fact that no satisfactory method for determining BAL in biological material was available led to synthesize BAL with radioactive sulphur (35S) incorporated in the molecule and to use it in studies of the fate of BAL in the animal body. Expand
A MONITOR FOR AIRBORNE TRITIUM
A monitor was designed which is suitable for the measurement of concentrations of tritium in air in the presence of a fluctuating background of gamma radiation. The monitor uses a pair of compensatedExpand
Synthesis and NMR Characterization of a New Series of Thiazole-2-Carboxaldehyde Thiosemicarbozone Compounds
This work will be the synthesis of a series of thiazole-carboxaldehyde-thiosemicarbazone ligands. After the synthesis and purification of these ligands, the new compounds went through analysis usingExpand
NON-EQUILIBRIUM CONCENTRATIONS OF RADON DAUGHTERS IN A VENTILATED MINE
The relative concentrations of radon daughters in a ventilated mine atmosphere are calculated for use in estimating airborne radiation hazards in a uranium mine. Various models describing theExpand
