Abstract

The Standard Reference Material 4351 from the National Institute of Standards and Technology is acknowledged to be inhomogeneous. The value of a single analysis for239Pu+240Pu could lie within a wide range, but the accuracy of the analysis can be corroborated by comparing the corresponding238Pu/239Pu+240Pu or240Pu/239Pu values with the relationships between these ratios and the total plutonium concentration.
