153 4.5. Radiochemical Purity Radiochemical impurities often arise due to the effects of radiation on the solvent(radiolysis), changes in temperature or ph, or the presence of reducing/oxidising agents. The pertechnetate ion is a strong oxidising agent capable of reacting with traces of reducing substances to produce lower valency species. Using thin layer chromatographic techniques the radiochemical species present in the eluates were investigated (Table VI) Elution Profile The elution profile of column based generators is influenced strongly by physical size and shape [6].

a) Conservation of Mass states that mass cannot be created or destroyed. b) Conservation of Energy states that energy cannot be created or destroyed. 7 Fission In 1939 Hahn and Strassman, while bombarding U-235 nuclei with neutrons, discovered that sometimes U-235 splits into two nuclei of medium mass. There are two important results: 1. Energy is produced.
