Abstract:

Aluminum and chlorine can be determined simultaneously with a precision of better than plus or minus 1 by activation analysis utilizing a mixture of 14.5 MeV and slow neutrons. The accuracy compares favorably with X-ray fluorescence and indicates that activation analysis can be a valuable method for the quality control of solid composite propellants. Author
