The determination of nickel (7440020) by instrumental neutron activation analysis is presented. The nickel-58 (n, p) cobalt-58 (13981389) reaction and high-resolution gamma spectroscopy were employed in these measurements. The nickel content of human hair was found to be more dependent upon the sex of the donor than upon other parameters. Mean values for males and female agreed with the values for the nickel content of hair obtained by other methods in most cases. Nickel sensitivity was not reflected in the nickel contents of hair in the female.
