Optimization of the Electrochemical Pre-Concentration of f-Elements
Rapid pre-concentration of trace lanthanide cations in aqueous solution has been achieved using mercury film electrodes. Although effective, this technique has shown minimal sample carryover when used to pre-concentrate ...
Influence of Methanol as a Cosolvent on Complexation Constants
Complexation constants are typically determined in a fully aqueous solvent system. In literature, there has been a small amount of reported work where complexation constants have been determined in mixed solvents or fully ...
Activation Product Analysis in the Presence of Fission Products
Methods to quantify activation products in complex samples are needed in areas such as nuclear safeguards, waste treatment and identification, environmental monitoring, and consequence management. Formation of activation ...
