137mBa has been applied successfully to dynamic studies for diagnosis in nuclear medicine for a long time. A variety of inorganic exchangers have been employed for the separation of137mBa from its parent137Cs. In the present study, cupric cobaltic ferrocyanide and amorphous zirconyl phosphate were synthesized and compared for use in a137Cs/137mBa generator. The results show that the former can adsorb137Cs more efficiently and provide high elution yield of137mBa with greater than 99.99% radionuclide purity. A new generator involving multimillicuries of137mBa, in connection with a computerized detection system, has been constructed.
