The different isotopes of carbon do not differ appreciably in their chemical properties.
This resemblance is used in chemical and biological research, in a technique called carbon labeling: carbon-14 atoms can be used to replace nonradioactive carbon, in order to trace chemical and biochemical reactions involving carbon atoms from any given organic compound.
AMS dating lab Beta Analytic is inviting members of the Society of American Archaeology (SAA) to join the raffle at Booth #300 during the 84th SAA Annual Meeting to be held at the Albuquerque Convention Center in Albuquerque, New Mexico, from April 10-14, 2019.
These amounts can vary significantly between samples, ranging up to 1% of the ratio found in living organisms, a concentration comparable to an apparent age of 40,000.), or other unknown secondary sources of carbon-14 production.
