What is it about?

Separation method of no-carrier-added 89-Zr, and 90,91m,92m-Nb from alpha particle irradiated yttrium target and subsequent separation of them from the target matrix by liquid cation exchange.

Why is it important?

A fine chemistry has been demonstrated to separate no-carrier-added radionuclides
