Abstract : A representative billet of Ames thorium metal has been analyzed for impurity elements by the nine laboratories participating in the thorium analytical program of l952-53. Chemical and spectrographic results and procedures are presented, together with a summary of the program meeting of September 1952 and post-meeting comment. Also included is the result of a danger coefficient test in which the Ames metal was compared with iodide thorium in the CP-2 reactor of the Argonne National Laboratory.
