Abstract

It was the purpose of this investigation to utilize the Szilard-Chalmers reaction in order to prepare tin solutions of high specific activity.

Tetraphenyl tin was chosen for the target compound. It is a white, crystalline solid of excellent thermal stability. No data have been reported in the literature on the rate of exchange between inorganic forms of tin and tetraphenyl tin but it seemed highly probable that this exchange would be very slow. Tetraphenyl tin is soluble in various organic solvents but insoluble in water, and this suggested solvent extraction as a possible means of separation of the activated tin recoil atoms from the inactive tin in the target molecule.
