With a view to monitoring the changes in coloration caused by the nuclear reaction 51V(n, beta)52Cr in solution of vanadyl sulphate and using it for neutron dosimetry, electronic absorption spectra of vanadyl sulphate solutions were investigated at different concentrations of chromate impurity in micromolar range. It was observed that the presence of… CONTINUE READING
