Radioisotopes of 37 elements were isolated from a gold target irradiated with an energetic 12C beam and were used as a multitracer to establish procedures for separating themselves into groups of carrier-, salt- and organic matter-free tracers. Solvent extraction with HDEHP and ethyl methyl ketone along with cation exchange yielded group tracers ready for application to chemical and biological studies.
