Mass Fractionation and Isotope Anomalies in Neon and Xenon

P. K. KURODA & O. K. MANUEL

Department of Chemistry, University of Arkansas, Fayettevlle, Arkansas 72701

The neon and xenon isotope anomalies observed in meteorites can be interpreted in terms of a mass fractionation, which is common for both elements. It is not necessary to assume the existence of large excesses of fission-type xenon in carbonaceous and gas-rich chondrites.
