VEGA-CARRILLO, Héctor René et al. Analysis of BOP-F polymer by Neutron Activation. J. Mex. Chem. Soc [online]. 2006, vol.50, n.1, pp.5-7. ISSN 1870-249X.

Neutron activation analysis has been utilized to determine the presence of undesirable elements in biocompatible osseous polymer fibers (BOP-F). This material is used as osseous tissue substitute in bone damage. The analysis was carried out using thermal neutrons. A short and long irradiation schemes were applied during analysis. Na and Br were found in the samples whose ratio is close to ratio found in human corporal fluids.

Keywords : Trace elements; Neutron activation analysis; BOP-F.
