Apparently the Hoko beads are now a nuclear propietory
item in Japan and they will not let them out of the country
Runor or truth? But thats the latest from Tyler as of IAEA meeting
in Vienna in March.
However, AVAK at Finnigan-MAT thinks that a German group has
developed a similar bead. His address

Also re your earlier note the new windows software for the Delta
series is quite awsome and well worth the wait. I would have a very
careful look at the new Finnigan-MAT stuff. And this is from a dyed
in the wool VG lab.

Does anyone know where I can purchase the so-called "Hoko beads" platinum
catalyst for doing hydrogen-water equilibration? Is there a substitute
available that works? I faxed the company (Shoko Co.) listed by Coplen in
the methods papers, but, was told the contact person was on holidays.
Repeated further attempts to contact over the past 6 months gave no reply.
Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.
