dc.description.abstractThe specific activity of 99 Mo is an important factor in the production of 99 Mo/Tc-99m generators used in nuclear medicine. Molybdenum-99 formed via the fission route is not carrier free but is contaminated by a number of stable molybdenum isotopes formed concurrently during neutron irradiation of the uranium target. The specific activity of fission-based 99 Mo is therefore a function of irradiation time and post-irradiation decay. A computer program written in FORTRAN is presented for defining routinely the specific activity of fission-based 99 Mo.en_AU
