Radioanalytical methods have become among the most important means for elemental analysis and the determination of chemical species Their extreme sensitivity has made them indispensable in a wide range of applications, including mineral analysis, medical and biophysical work, criminology, history, archaeology, and space research. This handbook combines theoretical and practical radioanalytical work covering the entire field of radioanalytical chemistry. Topics discussed include analysis by activation and nuclearreactions, isotope dilution analysis, radioreagent methods, analysis by absorption and the scattering of radiation. The handbook is extremely useful to scientists conducting applied and basic research in subjects related to analytical measurements, engineers designing control facilities and equipment, and professors and students working with analyticalchemistry, radiochemistry, radioanalytical chemistry, enviromental chemistry, biology, and physics.
