  • Alternative Molybdenum99 Production Processes

    However, the Mo99 produced by this process has a very low specific activity 3, 4 because most of the Mo in the product is Mo98. The specific activity for fissionproduced Mo99 is two to four orders of magnitude higher than from the neutron capture process (Ottinger and Collins, 1996).

  • NNSAs Molybdenum99 Program: Establishing a Reliable

    Mo99 is an isotope that is used in over 40,000 medical procedures in the United States each day, but is 100% supplied by foreign vendors, most of which use HEU in the production process. NNSA is working with commercial partners to accelerate the establishment of a redundant, reliable supply of Mo99 in the United States, produced without HEU.
