Abstract

99Mo was produced by the 100Mo(n,2n)99Mo reaction using 14-MeV neutrons from the D(3H,n)4He reaction at Fusion Neutronics Source Facility (FNS) at JAEA.

A target of titanium oxide gel with molybdenum oxide was irradiated and used as the 99mTc/99Mo generator.

The growth curve of 99mTc in the titanium gel target and the elution curve of 99mTc from the 99Mo/99mTc generator were obtained.
