Generally speaking, aluminum does not lend itself to analysis by neutron activation. The reason for this is readily apparent when one reviews a listing of the radioisotopes of aluminum and observes that aluminum-28 (half-life of 2.3 min) is the main isotopic product resulting from neutron bombardment. The relatively short half-life associated with this isotope disqualifies it from practical consideration for analytical applications unless the investigator is fortunate enough to be in close proximity to a neutron source.
