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.
