Abstract
In this study, the determination of isotopic composition and concentration of uranium and boron by mass spectrometric isotopic dilution have been performed .The isotopic composition was measured using thermal ionization mass spectrometer methodology employing U-233 and B-10 as spike isotope standards. The accuracy and reproducibility of the isotopic ratio and concentration measurements were evaluated
