Measurements have been made to determine variation of the mass attenuation coefficients of H3BO3 according to percentage increasing concentration of H3BO3 by using an extremely narrow-collimated-beam transmission method in the energy range 15.746-40.930 keV with an X-ray transmission method. The characteristic K-alpha and K-beta X-rays of the different elements (Zr, Mo, Ag, In, Sb, Ba and Pr) passed through boric acid was detected with a high-resolution Si(Li) detector. Results are presented and discussed in this paper. (C) 2003 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
