This test method uses rapid radiochemical separation techniques for determining uranium in water samples and is suitable for use following a radiological or nuclear incident. This test method is considered a rapid method when compared to other classical methods for the determination of U-234, U-235, U-236, and U-238 in aqueous solutions. A batch of test samples plus quality control samples can be chemically processed in ~7.5 h. This test method can be combined with other Rapid Radiochemical Methods to accomplish sequential separation of a single test sample aliquant for isotopes of americium, plutonium, strontium, and thorium.
The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.
