A Pilot Study of the Lung Solubility of Radioactive Materials Used at Awe

This paper begins with a review of the behaviour of inhaled actinide aerosols, the effect of physicochemical factors, the bio kinetic model for lung dissolution and absorption and dissolution tests. The paper then presents a technique for doing new solubility measurements adapted from successful published methodologies. The results achieved using a pilot solubility test are then discussed along with proposals for further work.
