This site and information found here on Liquid Scintillation (LS) are derived from “Liquid Scintillation – Measuring Procedures, New Developments” handbook. It contains the most important contemporary radioanalytical procedures applying this modern measuring technology. Additionally, it serves as a manual for the determination of radioisotopes by LS. New developments in this context are described with emphasis on research work on natural radionuclides published recently in two other handbooks. It was also featured on the Proceedings of the “International Conferences on Liquid Scintillation Spectrometry” LSC2001, 2005, 2008, 2010, 2013 and 2017. This handbook is also available as printed book under ISBN 978-3-923704-95-8.
The results found in this site are based on literature compilations and experimental investigations to the best of our knowledge. The authors point out that in the implementation of these methods depend on specific, individual circumstances.
