The Radioactivity of Thorium Incandescent Gas Lantern Mantles

The use of thorium in providing the intense white luminescence emitted from gas mantles, has a history of some 130 years, the initial application pre-dating by several decades large-scale urban

Radioactive Content of Lantern Gas Mantles Used in Night Food Stalls and Camping

Incandescent gas mantles are used for illumination by nocturnal food stalls, camping and other activities. In some countries, thorium-containing gas mantles are available without any indication of

Radioactivity released from burning gas lantern mantles.

Results of this study show that some of the radium and more than half the 212Pb and 212Bi is released during the first hour of a burn, and the actual amounts release depend on the age of the mantle.

Determining the age of gas lantern mantles using gamma‐ray analysis

The thorium used in gas lantern mantles is a naturally radioactive element. Using the buildup and decay of the daughters in the thorium decay series, the age of a gas lantern mantle can be determined.
