    Abstract

    The fast irradiation facility Mach-1 installed at the Danish DR 3 reactor has been used in boron determinations by means of Instrumental Neutron Activation Analysis using12B with 20-ms half-life. The performance characteristics of the system are presented and boron determinations of NBS standard reference materials as well as fertilizer materials are compared by literature value and spectrophotometric measurements, respectively. In both cases good agreement is obtained.
