This paper deals with the authors' response to some of the most frequently asked questions concerning the decorporation of radionuclides, with special reference to plutonium, americium, thorium and uranium. It also makes projections on the likely efficacy of treatment for a wide variety of industrial materials based on knowledge gained from decorporation research and biokinetic studies with these materials.
