Radionuclides are produced by irradiating the element, the radionuclide of which is to be generated in a high neutron flux reactor. Generally, only a small percentage, say is less than or equal to 10 - 5 percent, of the ms of the irradiat of the atoms of the irradiated element are transformed into radionuclides, the rest remaining inactive. As the inactive part interferes with trace measurements, carried out, for example, in medicine and technology, it should be kept as small as possible. Attempts have also been made to produce radionuclides in a carrier-free form, i.e., without the inactive part.
