Determination of Uranium and Thorium in the Industrial Phosphoric Acid Using X-Ray Fluorescence Spectrometry with Wavelength Dispersive (WDXRF)

  •  Mohamed Guitouni    


The method of determination for uranium and thorium in the industrial phosphoric acid by wavelength-dispersive X-ray fluorescence spectrometry (WDXRF) responds positively to all the validation tests and can be adopted for the dosage for these elements. It is clear that the procedure of the proposed method is simple and requires less time to complete the analysis. The concentration for uranium and thorium in the Tunisian phosphoric acid is in the order of 22 ppm for uranium with a coefficient of variation of 0.77% and of about 4 ppm for thorium with a coefficient of variation of 1.37%.
