The extraction of radon from water relies on the fact that radon is more soluble in organic solvents than in water. To achieve complete partition of Radon from the aqueous phase into the organic phase it is essential that a lipophilic (non-emulsifying) LSC cocktail is used. Meridian Biotechnologies offers two such cocktails:-
Pro-Scint Rn which is based on a mixture of mineral oil and pseudocumene
Both cocktails are lipophilic and form completely separate phases when mixed with water samples.
