This test method covers the determination of radiostrontium in water samples (for example, drinking, non-process, and effluent waters) with concentrations of 0.37 Bq/L (10 pCi/L) for 89Sr and 0.037 Bq/L (1 pCi/L) for 90Sr, or greater.
radioactive strontium; radioactivity; radiochemistry
This standard meets a need in the industry for a robust method for determining Sr-89 and Sr-90 in samples using a technology for which no standard methods currently exist.
The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.
