Koehler, M.; Degering, D.; Zessin, J.; Fuechtner, F.; Konheiser, J.

The paper describes radionuclide impurities (gamma-emitters and H-3) in proton irradiated O-18 enriched water from an Nb target vessel with Nb entrance window, their distribution in different synthesis steps and finally in the PET radiopharmaceuticals [F-18]Fluoride and [F-18]FDG.

Keywords: 18F; PET; radionuclidic purity
