Abstract

A combined radioanalytical method for determination of 93Zr and 237Np (as well as other actinoids) in radioactive wastes has been developed. Analytes were co-precipitated on iron(II)-hydroxide, separated and purified on UTEVA columns, and detected by inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry. According to Zr and Np, 65 and 75% yields were achieved, respectively.
