Background: One of the key techniques for the preparation of 125I seeds is adsorption of 125I onto silver bits coated by palladium (pd). Carriers played an important role in the adsorption of 125I on palladium. KI is used as a carrier for fixing of 125I onto silver wire bits coated with palladium. Materials and Methods: Three procedures KI, KOH, NH4OH were investigated for adsorption of 125I activity by different carriers. Results: Adsorptions percentage of 125I on treated silver beads showed about 85% by using KI as a carrier, the KOH showed 74% and 65% for NH4OH. Conclusion: The results indicated that, the use of KI as a carrier was suitable for adsorption of 125I on treated silver seeds with Pd than KOH and NH4OH. Iran. J. Radiat. Res., 2012 10(2): 105‐107
