The cadmium and boron ratios from 44 elements, totally 66 nuclides, were determined in the inner and outer irradiation sites of the Miniature Neutron Source Reactor (MNSR), China Institute of Atomic Energy. A permanent Cd-shielded epithermal neutron irradiation site has been designed and installed in the outer of the beryllium reflector of this reactor. Elements e.g., I, Br, Sr, Si, Th and U in biological samples, such as foodstuff, water and blood, geological and environmental samples, such as soil, rock, sediment and vegetable leaves were analyzed by BN-shielded epithermal neutron activation analysis (ENAA), and Au, As, Sb, Th and U by Cd-shielded ENAA. The results show that the detection limits of these elements by ENAA are better by a factor of 1.5-7 than those with conventional NAA.
