A new production method of 99Mo using accelerator neutrons via the 100Mo(n,2n)99Mo reaction was proposed. Intense neutrons with a most probable energy of 14 MeV can be produced by bombarding Be or C with 40 MeV deuteron beams. Research and development works of 99Mo produced by neutrons from the 3H(d,n)4He reaction were carried out. High quality 99mTc was obtained by employing a sublimation method. Accelerator neutrons are shown to have a great potential to produce a wide variety of radioisotopes.
