Direct liquid scintillation (LS) methods are widely used for surveying (222)Rn in drinking water. Two direct methods are used that differ in sample composition. In a two-phase sample, water lies below a water-immiscible cocktail, while in a homogeneous sample water is mixed with an emulsifying cocktail. Although these methods were developed in the late 1970s, their performances have not been simultaneously tested. Here, the methods were compared in two ways: by preparing both types of sample… CONTINUE READING
