Keywords:

  • actinide determination of low-concentration urine 235U/238U isotope ratios;
  • Q-ICP-MS as obvious, with MS-ICP-MS being more sensitive;
  • urine uranium isotope problems, at low concentrations by ICP-MS;
  • SPE, selective actinides, SPE with nitrogen addition and MS-ICP-MS;
  • uranium isotope ratio in urine, no single method being applicable to all
