The concentration of cadmium, cobalt, molybdenum, selenium, titanium and vanadium in natural water was determined by neutron activation analysis, using a prior preconcentration by a coprecipitation. The preconcentration of these trace elements was accomplished by converting the dissolved trace ions into the pyrrolidine dithiocarbonate (PDC) chelates, followed by coprecipitation on Bi as well as Pb-PDC chelates. This technique has been applied to the elements in natural waters: fresh water and sea waters (Mediterranian and Dead Sea).
