Description

  • Content Description: Sodium-24, produced by the Al (n, alpha )Na/sup 24/ reaction, has been found in the coolant of reactors using aluminum-clad fuel elements. Methods of calculating the activity due to scdium-24 are outlined. This activity was calculated to be normally 1.4 x 10/sup 5/ to 6 x 10/sup 5/ disintegrations per min per ml. The Na/sup 24/ isotope disintegrates with 2.76- snd 1.38-Mev gammas. (B. O. G.)
