FULL TEXT  


Background. The aim of ­this ­research is to ­study ­uptake of select­ed radio­nu­clides by ­plants ­under hydro­pon­ic and aseptic con­di­tions.
Methods. Accumulation of radio­nu­clides in ­plants is meas­ured ­using liq­uid-scin­til­la­tion spec­trom­e­ter and auto­ra­diog­ra­phy.
Results. During 32 ­days 37% of 137Cs, 48% of 125I and 17% 63Ni start­ing activ­ity was ­released ­from a liq­uid medi­um and accu­mu­lat­ed in ­plant.
Conclusions. The ­results ­obtained ­prove the pos­sibil­ity of uti­liz­ing radio­phy­tor­e­me­di­a­tion for prac­ti­cal appli­ca­tion.
