1.1 This test method is applicable to the assay or purity determination of plutonium metal of 98 % purity or higher. Uranium and iron are known interferences and must be determined separately. Their respective corrections must then be made to the assay value.
1.2 The recommended amount of plutonium determined in the titration is 210 to 240 mg.
1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
