Abstract

A method for the neutron activation analysis of arsenic, selenium and antimony has been developed. A radiochemical separation is performed by distillation followed by precipitation of the individual elements. Selenium and arsenic are precipitated by reduction to the elemental form while antimony is precipitated as sulfide. The chemical yields and detection limits using 0.5 g samples are the following: As 90–100%, 0.4 ppb, Se 80–100%, 8 ppb and Sb 50–70%, 0.2 ppb. Results from the analysis of nine international biological standard samples are given.
