Abstract A plastic scintillation counter was designed and constructed for measuring the H/sup 3/ content of hydrogen emerging from a palladium chromatographic column. The counter consists of a piece of plastic phosphor shaped into a tube and inserted in the glass tubing loading from the column, with painted capillary tubing ends to exclude stray light. The sensitive volume of the detector is 0.5 ml, and a counting efficiency of 2.2% with a background of 5 c/sec at 20 ts C was obtained for tritiated hydrogen at 66 cm Hg. (D.L.C.)
