Description: This study is part of a research into trace element physiology of fresh water snails. As an average, biological materials contain [approximately] o.0% (fresh weight) NaCl ; this means [approximately] 3540 mg Na/1 (in snails, 0.4% NaCl [approximately] ms/1). Under these conditions, the application of neutron activation plus gamma spectrum analysis for the study of most trace elements as a routine method, is difficult. We will narrow down the scope some more and consider only the interference between Na24 and Cu64.
