Abstract

A modified method for the production and purification of 36ClO3- in high yield is described. This procedure, involving the electrolytic oxidation of 36Cl- in a cell with simple electrode design and purification of the electrolysis products (36Cl-, 36ClO3-, and 36ClO4-) by aqueous column chromatography, allows for the recovery of about 80% of the initial radiolabel as 36ClO3-. The method is rapid and suitable for the production of this radiolabeled anion for use as a tracer analog for nitrate in plant membrane transport experiments.
