[Study on focusing chromatographic simultaneous determinations of 226Ra and its daughter nuclides by means of solid state alpha-tracks detection and beta-autoradiography (author's transl)].

Abstract

In order to detect to radioactive band on the paper strip developed by focusing chromatography, plate-making-film was used for the autoradiography and beta-spots were photographed. Thereafter the film was etched with sodium hydroxide solution to find the alpha-tracks. Paper strip used for the sample was prepared by the precipitation focusing chromatography of 226Ra and its daughter nuclides using HCl-KF solution as a developer. The film used was not high in its beta-sensitivity, but because of its high resolution good photographic results were obtained according to the intensity of beta-activity when the proper conditions of photographic development were fulfilled. The simple alpha-spectrometry was made possible by counting the numbers of tracks according to the etching depth of the film. The film was hard and thick enough for etching with 6M sodium hydroxide solution at 50 degrees C for more than 50 hrs to measure the depth of tracks.
