Abstract: The aim of the work was to study the potential usefulness of the NaA nanozeolite as a carrier for 223,224,225Ra radionuclides - very perspective therapeutic radionuclides. Zeolites are biocompatible crystalline aluminosilicates composed of tetrahedral structures which build open framework consisting of channels and cages of molecular dimensions [1]. We can distinguish many different kinds of zeolite structures with different selectivity and ion-exchange properties. The use of nanozeolite of suitable structure should enable stable encapsulation of radium radionuclides inside the framework.
