Standard Test Method for Low-Level Analysis of Iodine Radioisotopes in Water
|Publication Date:||1 May 2020|
|ICS Code (Examination of water for chemical substances):||13.060.50|
This test method covers the quantification of low levels of radioactive iodine in water by means of chemical separation and counting with a high-resolution gamma ray detector. Iodine is chemically separated from a 4 L water sample using ion exchange and solvent extraction and is then precipitated as cuprous iodide for counting.
The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses after SI units are provided for information only and are not considered standard.
