Journal of Chemical Education, v61 n3 p257-58 Mar 1984
Background information, procedures, and results are provided for an experiment in which lead-210 is separated from bismuth-210 and polonium-210 by means of solvent extraction of their diethyldithiocarbamate complexes. The method involves a simple extraction procedure which allows complete separation of lead-210 from commercially available radioactive Ra-DEF within several minutes. (JN)
