This Catalogue lists certified isotopic reference materials (IRMs) currently available or in preparation at the Institute for Reference Materials and Measurements (IRMM) (1959-1992: Central Bureau for Nuclear Measurements - CBNM). All of these Reference Materials have a certificate issued under the responsibility of IRMM, Isotope Measurements unit. Some of them have been examined by a nuclear experts committee because of their use in nuclear safeguards and are certified as EC-NRM's (European Community - Nuclear Reference Materials).
The IRMs listed can be divided into two major groups:
- those certified for isotope amount ratios and hence suitable for calibration of measurements of isotope abundance ratios
- those certified for isotope amount content and hence suitable for direct use in isotope dilution as "spikes" against which an unknown amount of an isotope or an element can be measured.
