Abstract

Radioactive cesium in water is concentrated by ion-exchange on finely divided ammonium hexacyanocobalt ferrate (NCFC), and then determined by beta counting. No carrier is added, and the method can be used to determine beta-emitting cesium isotopes at the 10-pCi/l level using a 100-ml sample. Five samples can be prepared for counting, in approximately 3 hours, and the method is applicable to fresh and saline waters.
