Abstract

The subject of this paper is to explore the possibility to obtain 99mTc from activation of 98Mo, using the TRIGA Mark II low flux research reactor (Vienna, Austria). Irradiation of both natural and enriched in 98Mo molybdenum oxides was compared. Aims of this work included the determination of neutron fluxes and 98Mo(n, γ)99Mo reaction effective cross section in the TRIGA Mark II reactor irradiation channels, calculation of 99Mo specific activities, determination of optimal irradiation conditions for the subsequent 99mTc separation from MoO3 targets using concentrating technologies.
