Detection of izotopes in tooth samples using the Ipaa method

With the IPAA method, which has a very important place among the element analysis methods, many substances with unknown element concentrations can be shed light on. The particular preference of the IPAA method has an important and unique place not only in elemental analysis, but also in the detection of isotopes of elements. In this study, we determined the isotopes of the elements in tooth samples using the IPAA method. Thanks to the reaction processes it went through, we were able to determine where the detected element actually came from, that is, its isotopes. Isotopes here actually mean the essence of the detected element, which is possible thanks to the detection of isotopes in the reactions of the detected element. In addition, the natural abundance ratios of the detected isotopes were discovered in this way. The isotopes of some of the dental samples examined in this study are included. The data analyzed here are the characteristic gamma rays emitted after stimulation. Characteristic gamma rays emitted from matter in the excited state were detected by gamma spectroscopy, which consists of HpGe detectors. The measured characteristic gamma-ray fingerprint is similar.While determining the isotopes, a nuclear data analysis program called Gf3 was used. In addition, Nuclear data center (NUDAT) was used for the possible reactions of the samples. Thanks to the possible reactions of the element whose main nucleus was detected, its isotopes could be determined. Thanks to the detection of the possible reaction, the daughter nucleus, hence the mother nucleus, could be detected. As a result, isotope atoms detected in dental samples have an important role in both the reactions and the determination of the main nucleus.
