Studies of the biological chemistry of aluminium can gain significantly from the use of the long-lived isotope 26Al as a tracer, although the cost of the isotope often precludes its determination by radiochemical counting techniques. Accelerator mass spectrometry (AMS) provides an ultra-sensitive method of determination, free from isobaric interference from… CONTINUE READING
