Determination of Dissolved Radium

  title={Determination of Dissolved Radium},
  author={Abraham S. Goldin},
A radiochemical procedure was developed to determine dissolved radium in public water supplies. Radium was coprecipitated with barium and lead sulfates using sulfuric acid. The carrier and radium were dissolved in nitric acid and reprecipitated with EDTA. The barium sulfate precipitate was washed and transferred to a planchet for counting.
