Foliar retention, transport and leaching of polonium-210 and lead-210

Foliar retention, transport and leaching of polonium-210 and lead-210

Radation Botany 12(4): 287-290

91.2% of the 210Pb applied to leaves of Phaseolus vulgaris was retained by the leaf, whereas only 31.1% of 210Po and 15.6% of 89Sr was retained. No detectable amounts of 210Pb were translocated from the site of application, whereas about 1.7% of 210Po and 7% of the 89Sr retained was translocated within 48 h.
