Abstract

New polymer-based materials have been evaluated in an effort to improve nitrogen-13 production with medical cyclotrons. A series of poly(styrene/divinylbenzene) derivatives have been synthesized and then pyrolysed to yield carbonized beads. Preliminary cyclotron studies indicate that pure 13N-labelled ammonia is produced upon irradiation of these materials.
