Abstract

A procedure was developed by which trace quantities of chlorine, bromine, iodine, tellurium, and uranium could be quantitatively determined simultaneously in a single meteorite sample. Meteoritic material was irradiated with thermal neutrons. Carrier ions were added, the material was fused with sodium peroxide and the chlorine, bromine, and iodine were isolated. Distillation from a sulfuric acid solution removed the halogens from the bulk of material. After distillation, selective solvent extractions were used to separate and purify each of the halogens. The purified halides were precipitated as the silver halides, weighed, mounted, and counted by β, γ and/or β-γ coincidence counting techniques.
