Abstract

AMS provides high detection sensitivity for isotopes whose half-lives are between 10 years and 100 million years. 14C is the most developed of such isotopes and is used in tracing natural and anthropogenic organic compounds in the Earth's biosphere. Thirty-three elements in the main Periodic Table and 17 lanthanides or actinides have long lived isotopes, providing potential tracers for research in elemental biochemistry. The overlap of biologically interesting heavy elements and possible AMS tracers is discussed.
