Although the use of radioactive-tracer techniques is often an excellent way to study chemical reactions, follow process streams, etc., less use is made of them than would be expected. This is due chiefly to difficulties in obtaining radioactive tracers in their proper chemical forms. Labeled compounds that can be purchased are generally expensive, are sometimes of questionable purity, and the time for delivery may be excessive.
