Production and separation of no-carrier-added 48V from 16O irradiated chlorine target

This is the first report on 48V production by heavy ion induced reaction on natural chloride target via natCl(16O,2pxn)48V reaction. Four BaCl2 targets of 3.5 mg/cm2 thickness were irradiated with 16O beam of 45.9 MeV, 54.1 MeV, 63.4 MeV and 70.6 MeV energy. About 1 kBq yield of 48V was detected when 63.4 MeV 16O beam (total 2576 µC integrated charge) interacted with natCl target. No-carrier-added (NCA) 48V was separated from bulk Ba target by classical precipitation technique using concentrated H2SO4. Ba was quantitatively precipitated while 48V remained in the supernatant which resulted a high separation factor (~ 4000).
