Abstract: The position of pre-irradiation separations in neutron activation analysis is shortly
discussed. Special attention is given to separations for purification and/or concentration
of analyte elements, either complexed or uncomplexed, via sorption on activated carbon.
It was shown for a number of trace elements that the blank value introduced due to the
use of activated carbon is small or mostly even negligible. The NAA determination via
pre-separations based on activated carbon is highlighted for selenium, cobalt and iodine.
