Several types of bottled drinking water originating from three different areas in Egypt are studied through measurement of radium activity, assessment of related annual dose for adults and finally to define the role of water quality on radium levels. The mean levels of (226)Ra activity range from 0.44 to 0.92 Bq/L and the mean levels of (228)Ra from 0.30 to(More)
A method is developed for separation and subsequent determination of low (226)Ra levels based on its extraction efficiency by various organic extractants followed by direct interaction with mixed scintillation cocktail (SC) in toluene as the most suitable solvent. Three organic extractants including Tricaprylmethyleammonium chloride (Aliquat-336),(More)
The adsorption behavior of 241Am, 60Co, 137Cs and 85Sr in the presence and absence of chelating ligands (ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid, ethylenediaminediacetic acid, hydroxyethyliminodiacetic acid, iminodiaceiticacid and methyliminodiacetic acid) was investigated. Sorption affinity in the absence of chelating ligands followed: Am(III)>Co(II)>Cs(I)>Sr(II).(More)
The separation behaviour of Pb(2+), Cu(2+), Cd(2+), Co(2+), Zn(2+) and Ni(2+) on bifunctional quaternary ammonium-sulfonate mixed ion-exchangers (Dionex, IonPac CS5 and CG5) was studied using different eluents including solutions of oxalic acid, potassium oxalate, sodium oxalate and ammonium oxalate. Separated metal ions were followed by using(More)
