Abstract
A procedure for the instrumental neutron activation analysis of Cd in soils with relatively high. Cd content and possible interferences is reported. Cadmium concentrations in Jamaican soils above 4 mg.kg -1 can now be reliably determined by multielemental instrumental activation analysis with an accuracy 10% and the reasonably high throughput of 30 samples per day. Over 600 geochemical survey samples were analysed for Cd along with some 20 other long-lived elements.....
