The isotopes of mercury have been successfully enriched in the calutron, to a maximum purity of 98.30% in the case of Hg 202. All Seven isotopes are available in enriched form as metallic mercury. Collection was accomplished by using solid silver receiver pockets which retained the mercury in the form of a low vapor pressure amalgam. Experimental and production problems are discussed. Production results are tabluated. A list of 19 users of the isotopes is included.
