An acetic-acid-based extraction protocol for the recovery of U, Th and Pb from calcium-carbonates for U-(Th)-Pb geochronology
A new method for the simultaneous recovery of U, Th and Pb from c. 0.5 g calcium carbonate samples for the purpose of U-(Th)-Pb geochronometry is presented. The protocol employs ion-exchange chromatography. Standard anion-exchange resin (AG 1-X8 100-200 mesh) is used as the static phase and 90% acetic acid is used as the mobile phase to elute the unwanted matrix components; dilute nitric acid is used to elute the U, Th, and Pb. Blanks of 1.8 pg Th, 6.4 pg Pb and 8.4 pg U have been obtained...Expand abstract
