The limited supply of Ac227 requires us to fully recover the isotope after all processing and measurement thus ruling out any destructive measurements. Despite these challenges, we have completed the first X-ray absorption fine structure (XAFS) and nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) measurements of Ac compounds. These studies contribute to understanding of Ac coordination chemistry both with simple ligands and popular chelators.
