Production of (211)At by a Vertical Beam Irradiation Method

Kotaro Nagatsu et al. Appl Radiat Isot.

Abstract

We produced (211)At by irradiating the semi-sealed encapsulated Bi target with an external vertical beam. At 28.5MeV, the yield of (211)At was 22MBq/μAh (600μCi/μAh). (211)At was recovered by dry distillation, and 80% of the produced (211)At was successfully obtained in dry Na(211)At form within 2h from the end of bombardment (EOB). The radionuclidic purity of (211)At was >99% at 5h from EOB.

Keywords: (211)At production; Dry distillation; Encapsulated target; Vertical irradiation.
