Molybdenum-99 from LEU targets is being produced in
Argentina, at the Ezeiza Atomic Centre, since 2002.
Before 2002, Argentina produced for more than 15 years
fission molybdenum-99 from HEU targets.
Both production procedures involve the irradiation of
the targets composed by an Uranium- Aluminium compound
"meat" cladded with aluminum and a chemical processing
of the targets.
A statistic relative efficiency analysis of the
production results, a brief description of the LEU
method and quality control data of both procedures will
