Catalytic tritiation and 3H NMR spectroscopy of complex organic mixtures ‐ application to oil shale process waters

Journal Article


Abstract


  • Several catalytic tritium exchange procedures have been investigated in order to accomplish uniform and random incorporation of tritium into the diverse organic solutes present in an oil shale process water. Comparative proton and tritium nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy revealed that a Raney nickel/THO system resulted in a reproducible procedure wherein the individual components are tritiated randomly in stable positions in proportion to their concentration. This approach to the labelling of complex organic mixtures opens new avenues for radiotracer studies in environmentally important areas. Copyright © 1982 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.
