14 MeV neutron activation analysis, based on the 82Se(n,2n) Se81m nuclear reaction, has been investigated for the measurement of selenium in environmental waters. The levels of the selenium present in environmental waters and the relatively high limit of detection achievable with fast neutron activation analysis resulted in the need to develop a concentration procedure for the extraction of selenium from large volumes of environmental water before neutron activation.
