Determination of plutonium-241 in low-level radwastes using radiochemical separation combined with LSC, alpha spectrometer and ICP-MS

Two kinds of measuring methods were described for the determination of Plutonium-241 in low level wastes in this study. Plutonium isotopes were separated and purified by highly selective UTEVA and TRU resin. LSC, alpha spectrometry, and ICP-MS were applied and compared for determination of Plutonium-241. There is a good agreement with the analytical results and also shows that the different analytical methods have high chemical recovery yields.
