Abstract

Radionuclides for radiopharmaceuticals can be produced in cyclotrons or nuclear reactors. Each of these production modes has serious issues, such as high target costs, production of long-lived wastes and contaminants, expensive separation. For this reason, new methods are under consideration for the production of highly pure radionuclides. The ISOL (Isotope Separation On-Line) method is the major technique for the production of radioactive ion beams for nuclear physics applications. The SPES-ISOLPHARM project at INFN-LNL (Istituto Nazionale di Fisica Nucleare-Laboratori Nazionali di Legnaro) is a feasibility study for the production of medical isotopes exploiting the ISOL method. The ongoing activities concerning a recent experiment focused on 111Ag, a study performed in collaboration with Padova and Trento Universities, is presented.
