The determination of mercury-204 was made by using the isotope shift of the 3984 A mercury line excited by electrodeless discharge. Densitometric traces were made from film recordings of the 3984 A line and the areas under the component peaks were determined. Ratios of each of these areas to the sum of the areas from all the line com-components are plotted against the isotope concentration to produce a working curve. The coefficient of variation for this method is approximately 11 percent The time required for a single determination (after fabrication of the discharge lamp) is about two hours.
