Significance and Use
5.1 This test method is applicable to aqueous solutions of uranium containing 0.05 to 20 g uranium per litre of solution presented to the spectrometer.
5.2 Either wavelength-dispersive or energy-dispersive X-ray fluorescence systems may be used provided the software accompanying the system is able to accommodate the use of internal standards.
1.1 This test method covers the steps necessary for the preparation and analysis by X-ray fluorescence (XRF) of mineral acid solutions containing uranium.
1.2 This test method is valid for those solutions containing 0.05 to 20 g uranium/L as presented to the spectrometer. Higher concentrations may be covered by appropriate dilutions.
1.3 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard.
1.4 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. Specific precautionary statements are given in Section 9 and Note 1.
