An experiment was performed at the National Superconducting Cyclotron Laboratory using a 140 MeV/nucleon 48Ca beam and a flowing-water target to produce 47Ca for the first time with this production route. A production rate of 0.020 ± 0.004 47Ca nuclei per incoming beam particle was measured. An isotope harvesting system attached to the target was used to collect radioactive cationic products, including 47Ca, from the water on a cation-exchange resin. The 47Ca collected was purified using three separation methods optimized for this work: (1) DGA extraction chromatography resin with HNO3 and HCl, (2) AG MP-50 cation-exchange resin with an increasing concentration gradient of HCl, and (3) AG MP-50 cation-exchange resin with a methanolic HCl gradient. These methods resulted in ≥99 ± 2% separation yield of 47Ca with 100% radionuclidic purity within the limits of detection for HPGe measurements. Inductively coupled plasma-optical emission spectrometry (ICP-OES) was used to identify low levels of stable ions in the water of the isotope harvesting system during the irradiation and in the final purified solution of 47Ca. For the first time, this experiment demonstrated the feasibility of the production, collection, and purification of 47Ca through isotope harvesting for the generation of 47Sc for nuclear medicine applications.
