Over the last few decades many techniques have been developed for determination of 90Sr/90Y in the environment. _erenkov counting technique (developed in the 1960s) is widely used, but can be further developed by the application of emerging technologies. For example, it is believed that the application of the triple-to-double coincidence ratio (TDCR) liquid scintillation counting method can be used to simplify the measurement of 90Sr/90Y in aqueous solutions. The objective of this study is to discuss the ongoing research to optimize the conditions for determination of 90Sr/90Y activities by the TDCR _erenkov counting technique.
