Abstract: AbstractThe application of micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS) to evaluate the chemical properties of radioactive solutions has been investigated with the example of a liquid sample taken from reprocessing plant vessels. For radiochemical solutions the application of a microvial instead of a millivial bears more advantages than for other chemical solutions because of the strongly simplified sample preparation and significantly reduced dose uptake. The scaling down of the liquid sample might also cause neg…
