Thorngate and W. J. McDowell, J. Inorg. Nucl. Chem. (in press). 31 Measurement by Liquid Scintillator of Labelled Compounds ( H or lkC) Dropped onto Supports Sonia Apelgot and Maurice Duquesne Laboratoire Curie de la Fondation Curie - Institut du Radium 11 rue P. et M. Curie. 75231 Paris Cedex 05 (FRANCE) Abstract Radioactive compounds dropped onto supports are measured correctly, even if not extracted by liquid scintil­ lator. Their dissolution is not required, it suffices simply to have a contact between the ß particles and the liquid scintillator.

24 ALPHA COUNTING AND SPECTROMETRY via pulse-shape discrimination (20). Beta or gamma inter­ actions with the scintillator produce light approximately 10 times more efficiently than do alpha particle interactions. This difference in light-producing efficiency plus the fact that both beta and gamma radiation produce a continuous pulse height distribution from zero to some maximum value* preclude separating this interference on an energy basis. Although alpha and beta-gamma produced pulses are of different pulse-shape (or pulse-time-duration) in some liquid scintillator systems (13, 21), they cannot be separated on a pulse-shape basis using presently available commercial betaliquid-scintillation equipment because the pulses are not processed in the optical or electronic system in such a way as to retain this information.
