Abstract Binary and ternary compounds and mixtures can be uniquely analyzed by a measurement of their BETA -ray transmittance and backscatter intensities. A mathematical equation for BETA -ray backscattering is developed which correlates the experimental data with the theoretical sample analysis. The standard deviation in the experimentally determined weight fraction of hydrogen in hydrocarbons and in hydrogen-containing ternary compounds is less than 0.03%. Analysis of ternary compounds is fast, simple, accurate, and nondestructive. (auth)
