Electrodeposition of Sulphur-35 by Means of Co-deposition from Organic Plating Solutions

Abstract

HITHERTO the electrodeposition of sulphur has been unknown and the lack of literature on the subject is not surprising since there appear to be no industrial applications for such electrodeposited layers1,2. However, thin deposits of radioactive sulphur would have a variety of applications within the nuclear sciences, for example, pure β-counting samples, sources for α-radiography and as medical applicators. Still another possibility would be the determination of radiosulphur separated from urine and the ‘fall-out’ resulting from nuclear detonations.
