Iridium isotopes (Ir)

Urenco Isotopes can enrich or deplete stable Iridium isotopes to any concentration, and supply in various chemical forms.

A selection of our iridium isotopes:

Iridium-191 (Ir-191)

  • Ir-191 is used instead of natural iridium to optimize the production of the radioactive Ir-192.

Iridium-192 (Ir-192)

  • Ir-192 is used in industrial applications for the Non Destructive Testing (NDT) of constructions.

  • The Ir-192 is used as a source of gamma radiation to detect irregularities in the material.

  • Ir-192 has also many medical applications such as ‘afterloading’ (brachytherapy) for the treatment of prostate, lung, breast and gynaecological cancers.

Iridium-193 (Ir-193)

  • The use of Ir-193 has been proposed for the production of the therapeutic radioisotope platinum-195m.
