Testing Ammonia Borane as a Promising Non-Toxic, Lightweight, Hydrogen Rich Material for Aprons in Nuclear Medicine
Abstract: The current study aims to find a non-toxic, low density, hydrogen-rich material that can be used in aprons without causing health problems for nuclear medical workers that could hinder their work and negatively affect patients. Five samples were tested in terms of fast neutron removal cross-section (C21H25ClO5, C2H4, LiH,H3NBH3,MgH2) mathematically using computer program called Phy-x/PSD it is a computer program designed to calculate the fast neutron removal cross section, and it was obtained that ammonia borane (??3??????3) with a density of 0.78 (g/ cm3) has the highest fast neutron removal cross-section with the value of (0.122959317985393cm-1) and the least for polyethylene (??2??4) with the value of (0.0838038707225853 cm-1) which made the ammonia borane a better candidate than polyethylene and other compounds that have been tasted in previous research for multi-layer aprons in nuclear medicine, and may approve a proper protection against the hazard radiations that its produced in nuclear medicine filed by several ways, due to it is low density and non-toxicity, And it contains the three most important elements that play a major role in protection shields, which are (hydrogen, boron, nitrogen).
