Radioisotopes 129I
Detection by Mass Spectrometry

This method describes the radiochemistry of 129I in seawater samples. It is based on the method described in Szidat et al (2000) and Michel et al (2012), modified during 2015 with own tests at EAWAG and ETH (Casacuberta et al., 2015). The method covers the radiochemistry of a seawater sample right after its collection to the final preparation of the cathode (target) before its measurement with Accelerator Mass Spectrometry (AMS).
