Abstract

Krypton-85, a {beta}-emitter with a long half-life and low biological hazard, has considerable industrial potentialities. It is difficult, however, to manufacture sources since the element occurs in gaseous form and cannot be chemically fixed. The authors describe a method of krypton-fixation in a macromolecular matrix formed by mass polymerization of a liquid monomer containing krypton; they also give an account of the preparation of two types of source produced in this way-one enclosed in polystyrene, the other in polyvinyl acetate. Such sources lose krypton; the activity of the first decreases by 8 % daily, that of the second by 3 % daily. These apparent decays enable the diffusion coefficients of krypton in these polymers to be calculated. Diffusion appears to be prevented by the cross-linkages which exist in the polymers.

Les auteurs exposent une methode de fixation du krypton dans une matrice macromoleculaire formee par la polymerisation en masse d'un monomere liquide contenant le krypton, et decrivent les preparations de deux types de sources realisees sur ce principe - l'une enfermee dans du polystyrene, l'autre dans de l'acetate de polyvinyle. Les sources ainsi obtenues laissent echapper du krypton; leur activite diminue de 8% par jour pour la premiere et de 3% par jour pour la seconde. Ces decroissances apparentes permettent de calculer les coefficients de diffusion du krypton dans ces polymeres. Celle-ci parait empechee par les liaisons de pontage existant dans le polymere. (author) [Spanish] El cripton-85 es un emisor beta de periodo largo y poco peligroso desde el punto de vista biologico, que ofrece considerables ventajas para su empleo en la industria. Sin embargo, la preparacion de fuentes industriales de {sup 85}Kr plantea dificultades porque este elemento se presenta en forma gaseosa y no puede ser fijado quimicamente. En la presente memoria los autores exponen un metodo de fijacion del cripton en una matriz macromolecular obtenida por polimerizacion en masa de un monomero liquido que contiene al cripton, y describen la preparacion de dos tipos de fuentes obtenidas segun este principio - una a base de poliestireno y la otra a base de acetato de polivinilo. Estas fuentes dejan escapar parte del cripton, por lo que su actividad disminuye diariamente a razon de 8 % en el primer caso y de 3 % en el segundo. Estos decrecimientos aparentes permiten calcular los coeficientes de difusion del cripton en los polimeros. Al parecer, los enlaces de reticulacion del polimero impiden la difusion. (author) [Russian] Kripton-85, kotoryj yavlyaetsya dolgozhivushchim beta-izluchatelem i predstavlyaet soboj neznachitel'nuyu biologicheskuyu opasnost', daet vazhnye preimushchestva pri ego promyshlennom ispol'zovanii. No izgotovlenie ego istochnikov yavlyaetsya trudnym delom, tak kak ehtot ehlement nakhoditsya v gazoobraznom sostoyanii i ego nel'zya fiksirovat' khimicheskim putem. Avtory izlagayut metod fiksatsii kriptona v makromolekulyarnoj matritse, obrazovannoj polimerizatsiej zhidkogo monomera, soderzhashchego kripton, i opisyvayut izgotovlenie dvukh tipov istochnikov, prigotovlennykh po ehtomu printsipu: odin zaklyuchen v polistirol, a drugoj - v polivinilovyj atsetat. Poluchennye takim obrazom istochniki ispuskayut kripton, i ikh aktivnost' umen'shaetsya v den' na 8 % dlya pervogo i na 3 % dlya vtorogo. EHti zametnye umen'sheniya dayut vozmozhnost' vychislit' koehffitsienty diffuzii kriptona v ztikh polimerakh. EHtoj diffuzii, po-vidimomu, prepyatstvuyut poperechnye svyazi, sushchestvuyushchie v polimere. (author)}
